KENTWOOD, LA (WAFB) -

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Deputies arrested two in connection with a church burglary that happened on June 15, 2014, at the Lewiston Baptist Church on Lewiston Rd. in Kentwood, LA.

The burglary was discovered early that Sunday morning. When deputies arrived, they found a broken window. During the investigation, they found a television and several air conditioning window units were taken.
