    Officials with the Madison County Sheriff's Office arrested Gavin Martin Beaudet and Kamia Dae Reed last week in a small town about 15 miles north of Asheville, North Carolina.

    News outlets report a sheriff's deputy said they caught the suspects as they were scrawling pictures of a horned devil on the church walls. The suspects then reportedly led officers on a short chase before being caught with stolen property on them.
