33-year-old David John Young of East Grand Forks was arrested after he allegedly broke into the Christ Community Church on 24646 Hazelwood Drive, stole cash, various other items, and defecated on the floor before he left.
An employee of the church arrived early in the morning and realized that the offices had been ransacked. The worker called the police and gave them a description of the suspect when they came to the church to investigate the matter.
During the investigation, the officers noticed that soda had been spilled all over a mini-fridge and microwave. When they checked inside a storage room, they found urine on the floor and a pile of feces. The police later searched the hotel room where Young was staying. They found several items belonging to the church in his briefcase.
Young was charged with burglary and was booked into the Crow Wing County Jail. His bail was set at $75,000.
