BROWNSVILLE - A Brownsville church vandalized back in July has been dumped on once again. Officials say vandals broke into the parking lot of the Pentecostal Circle Tabernacle Church and dumped a mountain of construction waste. Authorities say the illegal dumpers cut the lock on the fence and left toilets, doors, wood and mail. The mail was addressed to a local construction site a few blocks from the church on East 96th Street. According to police, sheetrock and wood similar to items found in the church parking lot were found on the curb at that site. Department of Sanitation workers will clean up the debris dumped at the church and tickets will be issued to anyone the mail was addressed to. Meantime, church officials are asking police to press charges.
