HAMMOND, La. — A man who authorities say burglarized a Louisiana church was caught as he attempted to flee.
Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an activated burglar alarm at the church around 2 a.m. and saw a minivan speeding from the church parking lot. Deputies stopped the vehicle and noticed Lawson bleeding from the head and arm.
Investigators later found a shattered church window and fresh droplets of blood on the scene. A sheriff’s office news release says no items are believed to have been taken from the church.
Lawson was charged with burglary of a religious building and reckless operation of a vehicle. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
