Following a foot pursuit, a 32-year-old La Grange man was arrested in Quincy Thursday afternoon.
In December the St. Peters Church reported money stolen from locked donation boxes located inside the church. The Quincy Police Department started an investigation.
At 4:19 p.m. Thursday the Quincy Police Department learned that the church was being burglarized. Officers responded and the suspect was pursued from the church. The suspect ran through a building on Chaddock grounds. He was ultimately captured outside this building.
The suspect was arrested for burglary to a place of worship, possession of burglary tools and resisting a peace officer. He was taken to the Adams County Jail.
