Suspected satanic vandalism in Harlem
A Grovetown man found disturbing vandalism on his Harlem property Wednesday.
When Harvey Raymond Fritts, 47, of Grovetown, went to his Harlem property on the 6300 block of McZilkey Drive, he found two wooden crosses with writing on them nailed to the fence at the property's entrance, according to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office report.
Responding deputies also reported circular patterns drawn on the driveway, which they suspected were satanic symbols, the report stated. Inside the circle, the vandals had placed chicken bones, a polaroid photo of Fritts and a Coca-Cola can. Above the circle, a metal cross was staked into the ground and had a necklace on the top.
