BOZEMAN — The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for vandalizing two Bozeman churches.
The federal agency said Wednesday that it became involved because of the possibility that one or both incidents may be a violation of civil rights.
The first break-in happened on March 9 at the Kirkwood Baptist Church. Holy Rosary Catholic Church was vandalized on April 7. Bozeman police said the churches were broken into overnight, anti-religious messages were spray-painted inside the buildings, several fires were set, and there was significant damage done to property inside.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the FBI's Bozeman office at 406-994-0927 or the Bozeman Police Department at 406-582-2010. Tips can also be emailed to SaltLakeCity@ic.fbi.gov.
