Chubbuck, Idaho • Police in eastern Idaho say they’re investigating after vandals defaced three Mormon churches in the small town of Chubbuck.

The Idaho State Journal (http://bit.ly/SxHTxs ) reports the vandalism on the buildings belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was committed sometime late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. The graffiti included anti-LDS statements, vulgar language and drawings and a rendering of a devil figure.

LDS spokesman Larry Fisher says the graffiti was similar to that left on two LDS churches in Pocatello about 18 months ago.

Chubbuck Police Chief Randy Severe says the amount of damage makes the vandalism a felony. He said police don’t have any leads yet.
