Shawnee Township investigating multiple criminal damaging incidents involving property and vehicles shot with bb projectiles. In conjunction with investigators from Lima Police it was determined our incidents are related to the Synagogue that was damaged in Lima.
Township investigators identified three persons of interest in the above incidents. Upon investigation and interviews both agencies are going to present two of these persons to the Grand Jury for potential charges.
What can be relayed at this point is that there is no evidence that the Synagogue was targeted. The Synagogue was on the way to a location they were traveling to.
Shawnee Township has two vehicles, a residence and Shawnee High School that sustained damage during this time.
I want to thank Lima investigators working with our investigators to put all of this together.
