RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three men were charged Tuesday with the vandalism of a Rutherford County food bank that serves hundreds of people.
Journey of Hope was damaged last weekend by the vandals who destroyed food and trashed the three-room schoolhouse.
The damage was estimated around $60,000.
Sheriff Robert Arnold told the congregation at Midland Baptist Church on Sunday that they only had one deputy to cover two large zones, one of which was where the burglary occurred.
Effective immediately, Sheriff Arnold said each zone will be covered by a deputy, even if they have to work overtime.
The three charged were 19-year-old Christopher Holden, 21-year-old Christopher Warner, and 20-year-old Alexander Burton.
They were each charged with vandalism and burglary and booked into the Rutherford County jail.
