Shasta County Sheriffs arrested a man Saturday who they allege broke into a Redding church and made off several items.

Deputies responded to a burglar alarm at the Newtown Church of the Nazarene near the 12000 block of Newtown Road approximately 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Further investigation revealed a broken window that triggered the alarm.

Deputies searching the interior of the church found no one in the building. However, deputies located Kenneth Paul Clark, 30, of Redding in the vicinity of the church grounds. Clark was found to be in possession of church property at the time of his detainment.

Clark then confessed to breaking into the church and stealing the items.

Clark was booked into Shasta County Jail on charges of burglary.
