Thirty-year-old Audley Graham of a St James address has been charged with Sacrilege after he allegedly broke into a church in Reading, St James on Friday, June 30 and stole food items.

Reports from the St. James Police are that about 1:48 a.m., the complainant securely locked up the church and went home. The complainant later returned and saw the church ransacked, made enquiries and discovered that the church was broken into and food items were missing.

During the investigation that followed, detectives viewed security footage that implicated Graham as the one who broke into the church by prying away a door.

He was arrested and subsequently charged, and his court date is being finalised.
