BRANDON, MS (WLBT) -

Investigators have arrested 21-year-old Elizabeth Lauren Guy of Brandon for the burglary and vandalization of St. Mark's United Methodist Church on Grants Ferry Road. 

Guy confessed to investigators that she and 21-year-old Anna Paige Smith, of Ridgeland, were involved in the burglary. Investigators have requested an arrest warrant for Smith.     

On Monday, employees of St. Mark's found that areas of the church had been vandalized overnight. 

Two women entered the cafeteria of the church, removed food and scattered it throughout the building. The two women wrote obscenities on several tables in the dining hall and then entered an office, where they were able to locate and steal church funds.  

Once in the office, they also gained access to a master key and opened most of the rooms in the church and vandalized those areas by either writing obscenities or throwing items around the room. 

Before leaving the building, the women adjusted the sprinkler system causing the parking lot to flood. 

According to Mississippi law, the maximum sentence for church burglary is fourteen years.
