The Post and Courier writes that this time five youths broke in through a historic glass window and cause some $50,000 in damage.

Go read their story.

Just back in April the church had been vandalized -- the church has been hit often enough that a security camera now sits perched outside to catch misdoers.

Built in 1725, the chapel of ease is on the National Register of Historic Places. Wikipedia has a good rundown of the history of the site.
