NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two more suspects in the vandalism of the "I Believe In Nashville" mural have been charged.

Caleb Jones and Breanna Lesch, both 20, were both charged with felony vandalism on Thursday night. Both are free on bond.

The third suspect, 20-year-old Brandon Murphy, was charged with felony vandalism on Wednesday. He is free on bond.

The trio is accused of using paint to deface the mural around 2 a.m. Tuesday in the 12 South neighborhood.

Police said during interviews, Jones and Lesch admitted that they planned the vandalism with Murphy and acted as lookouts.

Lesch said the three knew each other through the Nashville music scene.

Jones and Lesch came forward and were questioned earlier this week. Police said they were charged as a result of the ongoing investigation.

The owner of the building said he estimates it will cost more than $1,000 to restore the mural.
