All-out vandalism on church -- Nixa, MO

Nixa police are investigating vandalism at the Calvary Baptist Church in Nixa that did an estimated $10,000 damage.

Pastor Carl Curtis says the vandals entered the church sometime during the weekend and trashed the two-story building. The damage includes holes in drywall and ceiling, broken windows and spray paint on the walls.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that the vandals also emptied the church's food pantry and discharged fire extinguishers into the carpet.

The church didn't have services Sunday because of snow, so the damage wasn't discovered until Tuesday.

Nixa Police Detective Jason Hartsell says police believe the vandals were kids. He estimated the damage at $10,000.
