Authorities in Morris County are investigating reports that five churches have been vandalized :rolleyes:, and authorities say they're treating the incidents as possible bias crimes. :rolleyes:

The county prosecutor's office and police in Morristown and Morris Township say church officials notified them on Saturday about vandalism that happened overnight.

The damage to the churches includes a broken stained glass window and damaged exterior signs.

The churches are Church of God in Christ for All Saints; Bethel A.M.E. Church; Calvary Baptist Church; and Union Baptist Church, all in Morristown; and Morristown Church of Christ in Morris Township.

Gov.-elect Phil Murphy tweeted Saturday night that he was "disgusted by reported vandalism of African-American churches." :rolleyes:

"These cowardly acts will not shake our faith. They will renew our determination to come together as one NJ," Murphy wrote in the tweet. :rolleyes:
