SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (AP) — Vandals threw rocks with anti-Mormon church messages attached at the windows of five church meeting houses in the Salt Lake City suburbs.
South Jordan police officer B.J. Smith said the rocks were thrown at glass doors of the buildings in South Jordan and Riverton overnight Oct. 11.
Smith said typed notes attached to each rock read: “Stop spreading your lies, pagans.”
At one church building the double-paned glass was broken. At the others,the rocks broke through only the first pane of glass, landing outside the buildings.
Smith said the vandalism could be investigated as a possible hate crime if the vandals intended to intimidate or terrorize.
