(Lancaster) -- Police are investigating Satanic graffiti spray-painted onto a Lancaster County church.

The vandalism included the digits "666" and upside-down crosses sprayed on the cupola above the roof of the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Manheim Township.

The graffiti was discovered Sunday afternoon.

Pastor Michael Rogers say the church has never experienced anything like this and was at a loss to explain it -- saying it appeared to be the work of "somebody stupid with something to get out of their system."

Whoever painted the graffiti had to climb about 40 feet above ground to paint the structure, which protrudes from the roof just beneath the church's steeple.
