ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - A 20-year-old local man has been charged with burglary after a 150-year-old bible was stolen from a local church.
The suspect has been charged with three counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree theft/stealing, and two counts of second-degree property damage.
The suspect is accused of burglarizing St. John's Lutheran Church on Morganford on Friday and stealing a 150-year-old Augsburg bible.
The bible was recovered Wednesday at Hammonds Antique Store on Cherokee Street.
The church has been targeted by burglars and vandals at least five times in recent months and a local business has donated money to install an alarm system at the church.
