FAYETTE COUNTY (KWWL) -

Three teens have been arrested in connection with racial slurs and profanity that was spray painted on two bridges in Fayette County and a bridge and stop sign in Bremer County.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says it was reported to them on Monday that profanity and racial slurs including "Whites rule the world," were painted in black spray paint across the bridges on 20th and 30th Streets, just north of Fairbank.

Also on Monday, the Bremer County Sheriff's Office received reports of similar graffiti on a bridge in the 3200 block of 260th Street near Fairbank.

With the help of the Wapsie Valley School District, two 16-year olds and a 17-year old, all from Fairbank, were arrested on Wednesday.  They are charged with second degree criminal mischief in Fayette County.  The three are charged with fifth degree criminal mischief in Bremer County.  Their cases were transferred to juvenile court in both counties.

A few years ago there was a similar incident involving spray paint graffiti in Fayette County. The Sheriff says it took hours to clean up and cost about $1,800 in damage.
