Quincy police arrested a LaGrange, Mo., man on charges of burglary to a place of worship, possession of burglary tools and resisting a peace officer in connection with a break-in Thursday at St. Peter Church, 2600 Maine.
Police said Christopher Kackley, 32, was taken into custody after police responded at 4:19 p.m. Thursday to a report that St. Peter Church was being burglarized.
Officers responding to the call pursued a man who then fled the church, ran through a building on the Chaddock grounds and eventually was captured outside the Chaddock building.
Kackley was lodged in the Adams County Jail pending a court appearance.
A police report on Thursday's incident also said St. Peter Church officials reported in December that some money had been stolen from locked donation boxes inside the church.
