ROSEBUD -- The First Baptist Church of Rosebud was shocked to find their building had been vandalized with satanic symbols and the words "Lott City Gangsters" tagged around the church.

Rosebud police tell us they now have leads as to who the vandals are that tagged the Falls county church sometime late Sunday night.

There are broken windows and religious symbols throughout the building.

Pastor Hickman, who is fresh out of seminary school, says he has no idea who could have done it or why, but believes it's not an act against their church specifically.

"I honestly think this really doesn't have anything to do with us. I think this is about someone and their problems and that they're expressing it this way," Pastor Jody Hickman with the First Baptist Church of Rosebud said.

Hickman says the only thing stolen was an envelope with 15 dollars in it and now they're waiting on estimates for repairs through insurance.

But he says many people in the community have stepped up to help clean the church and get things back to normal as quickly as possible.
