He did not release details about the individual and says no one has been questioned yet.

Mohsen says archeologists are still reviewing the extent of the damages.

Officials on Sunday discovered the initials "JMN" etched into the rock near an image of a pregnant buffalo.

Thousands of people visit the rock art panels in Nine Mile Canyon each year. The images are believed to date back to the Fremont period between 900 and 1250.
