Police Search For Vandals That Damaged Church

YORKVILLE, Ill. (WBBM) — The Kendall County sheriff’s office is looking for whoever’s responsible for shooting a BB gun and damaging stained glass windows at a historic church in Yorkville.

Just last year the Plattville United Methodist Church in Yorkville celebrated its 150th anniversary and later this year the stained glass windows will be 100 years old.

“The stained glass is just beautiful.”
