Billboard with Jesus vandalized
Seen in this photo is the sign after vandals defaced it this summer.
Members of Ebenezer Evangelical Congregations Church spent the weekend cleaning up a billboard that has been vandalized.
The billboard with a picture of Jesus is located along Route 209 in the Packerton area of Mahoning Township. It is a frequent target.
On Wednesday, Mahoning Township police received a report that the Ebenezer Evangelical Congregations Church billboard was vandalized overnight.
A bottle of Radiant Colors ink (tribal black) was found next to the billboard. This ink is commonly used by the tattoo industry.
Police are again requesting the public's assistance in identifying whoever is responsible for vandalizing the billboard. Anyone with information is asked to contact township police at 570-386-2241 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The billboard was spray painted by vandals with red and black paint numerous times over the summer.
