BOGART, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say vandals used axes to damage a Boy Scout hut behind a church in Oconee County.

Oconee County Sheriff’s Chief Investigator Jay Higgins tells the Athens Banner-Herald that there are currently no suspects. He says it appears nothing was stolen, but the structure was damaged and furniture was destroyed.

Authorities say a deputy surveyed the damage with a church deacon and trustee Tuesday. The scout troop is no longer active, so no one had been to the building for about six weeks.

A church spokesman told the newspaper no monetary estimate has been made on the damage.

All I can say is there are evil people in the world. Can't stop that. I just wonder what the people that did this thought they had to gain and what horrible anger they must feel inside to take axes to anything except to chop wood for the fireplace. I am just glad it was a building they took an ax to.
