With Howerton stopped, two other deputies met the church pastor and reviewed security camera footage showing a burglar matching the description of the suspect. The pastor’s office window was broken and a clerk’s office door was knocked in. Missing were four television sets, two laptop computers with chargers and $54 in change from a safe.
