(Orange County Register) Two brothers who barricaded themselves inside Harvest Orange County Church for two hours Wednesday night might have been armed with a fake gun and were intent on damaging the facility, a church official said on Thursday.
“At this point, it appears to be vandalism,” said Johnnie Moore, a spokesman for Harvest Orange County. “We are confident the situation is fully resolved. All services and programs will continue as normal, but Harvest is taking additional security measures for the foreseeable future as a precaution.”
Police on Thursday announced the arrest of Paul Vincent Vielkind, 24, and Brandon Joseph Vielkind, 22, both of Riverside, on suspicion of burglary and felony vandalism. They were being held Thursday in the Orange County Jail.
