Utah pair arrested for multiple vandalism attacks of church property

Police in West Jordan, Utah have arrested two people believed to be responsible for vandalism at 11 church properties. Shania Kaitlynn Page Carson, 21, and Colby Dean Robertson, 19, are also suspected of damaging cars in the parking lots of church meetings.  In all, both are charged with 56 counts of criminal mischief.

The arrest came after a police officer pulled over a car in which Carlson and Robertson were found with rocks, bats and a sledgehammer.  Police say these items and other evidence allowed police to file charges.

A motive for vandalism has not been announced by authorities. The Desert News reports the targets were chosen because they appeared vulnerable.
