Chickasha police arrest man in connection to church vandalism

Posted: Updated:
Chickasha police say they have arrested an 18-year-old in connection to recent vandalism of a church.

Chickasha Police Department Chief of Police Eddie Adamson says on Friday his department arrested 18-year-old Jacob Raymond Franklin on the felony charge of defacing or injuring a house of worship.

According to court documents, on June 16 Franklin spray painted anti-religious messages and other words on a wall and door at the New Life Christian Church in Chickasha.

Franklin is also suspected in several other instances where a similar color spray paint was used to vandalize vehicles, residences, storage structures, garages and utility poles.

Court documents say the spray paint displayed words and symbols such as "Crow" and "sleepy de" and words that are commonly used in the Juggalo community. A Juggalo is the name given to fans of the group Insane Clown Posse.

Chickasha police say they received an anonymous tip after the vandalisms were reported that pointed to Franklin. After police interviews with Franklin, the suspect admitted he went by the name "Crow".
