COLUMBUS, OH – Mason Christian Mayerchak, 30, of Blacklick has been charged with vandalizing the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Columbus and causing $100,000 in damage.

At about 5:45pm, Saturday, the man entered the church at 555 N. High Street and refused to leave, WCMH-TV reports. When officers arrived on scene they observed glass all over the cathedral and saw Mayerchak pulling a stained glass window apart.

“I heard and I read about it. I was surprised. I was shocked. Honestly it’s just a sad thing,” Ilias Zervas, a member of the church said to WCMH-TV.

Mayerchak is accused of damaging a church pew, gospel stand, gospel book, vestment, altar candle sticks, tabernacle, incensor and stand, processional fans, gospel cross and a $40,000 stained glass window.
