DUCHESNE, Utah (AP) | Two men and a teenager have been arrested on suspicion of vandalizing a Mormon meetinghouse in eastern Utah and spray-painting an anarchy symbol over a portrait of Jesus Christ.

The three also are accused of painting swear words on walls in red paint, and stealing an undisclosed amount of cash and other items.

Duchesne County sheriff's deputies say the break-in and vandalism occurred between late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

The Deseret News reports Tristan Hirst and Denver Bell, both of Duchesne, were booked Friday into the county jail for investigation of burglary, criminal mischief and theft.

A 17-year-old Duchesne boy also was taken into custody and was being held at a youth detention center.

Investigators have said federal agents haven't been called to investigate it as a hate crime.
