One of the men accused in connection to the break-ins was arrested on October 8. A Crime Stoppers tip led to the arrest for Chris Webb.

The charge of simple burglary of a religious building receives a 2 to 12 year sentence per count.

Anyone with information that can help in locating Chrystal is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867.
