ROCHESTER, Minn. (USA) -- A Buddhist temple in Rochester has been vandalized twice over two weeks.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incidents at the Buddhist Support Society.

Sgt. Scott Behrns says the second incident happened late Thursday or early Friday, when someone smashed spotlights and globe lights at the entrance to the property.

The weekend before, someone painted a cross on the driveway and the words "Jesus Saves" on the property.

Behrns says the person behind the incidents needs to "knock it off and grow up."

Behrns says anyone who sees suspicious activity should call police.
