On Saturday May 26, 2018 at 5:45pm 30-year-old Mason Christian Mayerchak of Blacklick entered the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral at 555 N. High Street.

The caller told police that Maychak appeared intoxicated and refused to leave. He then started to destroy the cathedral.

The first responding officer observed broken glass all over the cathedral and then saw the suspect pulling a stain glass window apart. The vandalism was also caught on surveillance video.

Mayerchak is accused of damaging a church pew, gospel stand, gospel book, vestment, alter candle sticks, tabernacle, incensor & stand, processional fans, gospel cross & a $40,000 stain glass window.

Officers say after he was placed in the cruiser he began kicking the door so his legs had to be retrained in addition to being handcuffed.

Mason Mayerchak faces a charge of vandalism. The investigation is ongoing by CPD’s Burglary Unit.

FEMA Sued by Churches in Texas Over Harvey Damage

Views:528|Rating:5.00|View Time:47Minutes|Likes:6|Dislikes:0
On Tuesday, three churches in Texas severely damaged by Hurricane Harvey sued the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The lawsuit was reportedly filed due to FEMA’s policy of refusing to provide disaster relief to houses of worship because of their religious status. In their complaint, the churches said FEMA’s public assistance program “categorically” violates their constitutional right to freely exercise their religion. The filing goes on to say that FEMA’s policy, which was enforced after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012, also contradicts a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision making it easier for religious groups to receive public aid.

In this episode of Restoration Renegades, Jeremy visits Jerry Blaylock of the American Drying Institute. When a home or business is flooded by a storm or unexpected plumbing disaster, most people call a Restoration expert. Jerry has trained thousands of those experts from all over the country.

Together, Jerry and Jeremy “The Adventurer” visit a house built specifically for flooding, where the best water damage restoration techs receive hands on training. Jeremy turns a hose on inside this training home, which is built to the same specs as most homes across the United States. Once the ceiling, walls, furniture, carpets, and flooring are all dripping wet and thoroughly soaked, Jerry will go to work directing his students on how to properly operate the drying and measuring equipment and techniques necessary to dry it all out and save the house.
