The investigation into the burning and vandalism of churches in Bethesda, Maryland is ongoing in juvenile court.

That’s the update Monday from Montgomery County Police, who also added in a statement that “there is no continuing threat to the community in connection with these incidents.”

Montgomery County Police investigators have been working with Montgomery County fire and rescue officials since fires and property damage were discovered at churches earlier this month.

On July 9, firefighters discovered damage to Wildwood Baptist Church and nearby North Bethesda United Methodist Church, where a small fire had been started on the property outside, causing damage estimated at 1,000 $.

Then, on July 10, firefighters responded to a call and found several pews on fire at Saint Jane Frances Catholic Church in Chantal.

No one was injured in the fires.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services Arson Line at 240-777-2263.
