DUNWOODY, Ga. —
Four cars were set on fire in the parking lot of a Spanish-speaking Dunwoody church early Monday.Channel 2’s Amanda Cook went to the Iglesia Adventista Church on Peeler Road, where tow trucks were hauling away the charred vehicles. DeKalb County arson investigators are looking into the case. Church leaders first learned about the fire when Cook called them for more information. They were upset and said they want answers. "How can people do this? It doesn't make any sense," Rafael Encarcion told Cook.Dunwoody police were called to the church at 2:30 a.m. after reports of one car catching fire. Two-and-a-half hours later, they were called back because three more cars were burning.Church leaders said vandals broke into several cars at the church just a few weeks ago. "They stole the stereo, the speakers of my brother's car," Encarcion said.Also recently, police had to chase off vandals hanging out inside the church storage building.Church leaders said they don’t know whether they being targeted but said better security is needed.“Problem is we don't have the money to do that," Encarcion said.
A Channel 2 Action News investigation finds thousands of local votes in the last presidential election didn’t count, though many should have.
