Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office investigators on Friday arrested a 56-year-old Jacksonville man for criminal mischief after he reportedly spray-painted and left makeshift “shrines” at two Jacksonville Latter-day Saints churches.

Richard Lee Settle was arrested after his Visa debit card was discovered at the site of one of the desecrations. At the Mormon church at 5100 Firestone Road, there were three scrolls spray-painted in red, blue and black paint and a “suspicious package,” containing tobacco products and the debit card, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reported. Graffiti around the building included a Star of David, a question mark, a plus sign, a multiplication sign, the word “dragon,” and a reference to a Biblical verse.
