ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - Police in Rogers say two teenagers have been arrested in connection with vandalism at a historic church.

Police say the 18-year-old and 17-year-old were both arrested for first-degree criminal mischief and the 18-year-old faces an additional charge of breaking or entering while the 17-year-old faces an additional charge of commercial burglary.

The two are suspected of breaking at least eight windows at Mount Hebron Church that officials have said was built in 1904. Police say the estimated cost of replacing the broken windows is about $2,000 apiece.

Police say an undisclosed tip led them to the suspects.
