Posted on Fri, Jun 14, 2013 at 10:29 AM

Detectives are searching for 24-year-old Michael Christopher Garko, believed responsible for thousands of dollars in damage to a Savannah church.

At 8:35 a.m. this past Monday, Metro officers responded to The Church at Godley Station, on the 1600 block of Benton Boulevard. Officers observed a broken window on the front door and ­­­­several shattered glass windowpanes around the building. It did not appear that the suspect made entry.

Security cameras captured images of a white male at about 4:50 a.m. Monday. Further investigation revealed, that on June 9, a white male identifying himself as “Mike Garko” was at the church requesting and receiving money for food and shelter from members.

    Because of the remarkable scope of the lawsuit—four plaintiffs, 15 defendants, and a narrative going back to the mid-‘90s—it has potential to be the Rosetta Stone, the Holy Grail, linking the days of the Jivens crime syndicate and today’s Willie Lovett-era police corruption.
