JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

WLBT News first reported on the vandalism of a south Jackson church. Jackson police now have teenagers in custody.

Viewers called Three On Your Side Wednesday after discovering several thousand dollars at their small Baptist church. Beacon Hill Baptist Church is on Hickory Drive.

Sometime early Tuesday morning witnesses report youngsters in front of Beacon Hill Baptist Church, reportedly kicking at the concrete pillars holding up the portico. That's when the front cover collapsed blocking the entrance. Police conducted a follow up investigation and suspects were developed.

The juvenile suspects were arrested today for felony malicious mischief and transported to the Henley Young Detention Center.
