On Easter Sunday, a trailer full of Bibles was intentionally burned near Global Vision Bible Church in Mount Juliet, Tennessee.

The Wilson County Sherriff's Office said the "suspicious" incident occurred around 6 am and caused a road closure at Old Lebanon Dirt Road and Chandler Road.

The department released a statement about the incident on Facebook and wrote: "The trailer, containing bibles, had been dropped off in the middle of the intersection and then intentionally set on fire."

"Around 6 am this morning, the Mt. Juliet Police Department and Fire Department swiftly responded to a trailer fire located at the intersection of Old Lebanon Dirt Road and Chandler Road. Upon arrival, it was confirmed that the trailer fell within our jurisdiction," the statement read.

"The fire was promptly extinguished by the diligent efforts of the Mt. Juliet Fire Department. Following the containment of the fire, Wilson County Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives assumed control of the investigation. To uphold the integrity of the ongoing investigation, other specific details cannot be provided at this time," the department wrote.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said they will release more information when it is made available.

It's unclear how many Bibles had been burned.

Anyone who may have additional information and/or camera footage is urged to contact the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-444-1459.
