SOUTH WEBER — Davis County Sheriff’s deputies are hoping the person who smoked marijuana in an LDS church Sunday evening will feel the need to repent and come forward to confess.
A volunteer was assigned to check locks on doors and windows at a building owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 1375 E. South Weber Drive on Sunday night. During his rounds, he found a window open and the smell of smoke coming from the room. He called police, said Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen.
When a deputy arrived, the two entered the building and found, “there had been a party going on in there,” Poulsen said.
The two found marijuana ash in the carpet and in the trash can, a knife, plastic cups, an empty soda bottle and a set of scriptures.
“There was the smell of fresh marijuana still in the air,” Poulsen said.
The deputy retrieved the items and they will be tested for fingerprints.
Authorities suspect that they are looking for young people.
“It appears to be a juvenile thing to do,” Poulsen said.
There was no forced entry and no damage done to the building.
Deputies are asking the public for any information they might have.
“We’d love it if whoever did it would turn themselves in,” Poulsen said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Davis County Sheriff’s dispatch 801-451-4150.
