SALT LAKE CITY – Police arrested a Mormon at the Mormon Temple in St. George on Saturday morning after allegedly breaking in and damaging works of art, furniture, and other items.

"At 5am, a person broke a window and entered the St. George's temple," said Eric Hawkins, spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Then he went to the fifth floor of the temple, damaging furniture, artwork, and other items.
After causing additional damage on the fifth floor, he was imprisoned by temple workers (no physical restraint was required). The police arrived and he was arrested.
Hawkins said workers have repaired the damage.
