Religious Statues Decapitated Outside NJ Church

Police are reviewing surveillance video after someone damaged eight religious statues outside a New Jersey church.
 
Many of the statues outside St. Mary's Church in Franklin Township were decapitated.
 
Officials believe the statues were vandalized between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Thursday.
 
Police Sgt. James Reilly tells The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill the suspect took his time and caused some damage.
 
"It wasn't a 30-second melee," Reilly told the paper.
 

Police and parishioners in the Gloucester County community say there has never been anything like it.
