Police are looking to the public with hopes of identifying a group of people in relation to a recent act of vandalism at Waterbury's Holy Land.
According to the Waterbury Police Department, the incident occurred on the attraction's property located at 60 Slocum Street between late Thursday night, December 26 and early Friday morning, December 27.

The Holy Land attraction has been the focus of vandalism many times over the years. Our most recent report was back in 2017, when three teens were arrested after being accused of using spray paint to defame the cross with pentagrams, other symbols and obscenities.
The Bible themed park, which was first opened in 1955, was recently named among one of the "worst tourist traps" in a America.
