Parker County Sheriff's Crime Of The Week

January 6, 2011 by Brittany Blank

Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division is assisting the Parker County Fire Marshal’s Office in investigating an arson incident of a church located in the 200 block of Eden Road, which has been named the Crime of the Week.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said deputies responded to the call Monday, Jan. 3, 2011 at around 1 p.m., where a church deacon reported unknown suspect(s) entered the property, threw a glass bottle at the church building and ignited toilet paper on the side of the building along with a doormat sometime between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Sheriff’s Investigators and Fire Marshals are following up on leads.

Sheriff Fowler said he encourages anyone with information about this crime to call the Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-8845 or Parker County Crime Stoppers at (817) 599-5555. You may remain anonymous when calling. Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of any suspect(s) involved.

“To defile a church in any manner is a senseless crime,” Fowler said. “It is disheartening and we will follow up on all leads in order to bring the suspects to justice.”

Arson with intended damage of a place of worship is a first degree felony and if found guilty, is punishable up to five to 99 years or life in prison and a fine not to exceed $10,000.
