GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say three young people are suspected of vandalizing two churches in western Michigan.

The Ottawa County sheriff’s department says information from the public led investigators to the teens, ages 13, 15 and 16.

Authorities say the front door was pried open about 3 a.m. Sunday at Georgetown Protestant Reformed Church in Georgetown Township. Bibles, books and other church literature were found thrown around the lobby. Fire extinguishers were discharged.

Damage to the church was estimated about $2,500.

Deputies say the same three young people are believed to be responsible for vandalizing the Jamestown Christian Reformed Church on Sunday.

The department says the teens are in the custody of their parents as the investigation continues.
