YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Yorktown Police have charged three Mohegan Lake minors with ransacking the Hudson Valley Islamic Center on Wednesday, Sept. 17, officials said.

One of the suspects is 13-years-old and the other two are 12. The names of the suspects are being withheld due to their ages, police said.
