A Washington man came out of the closet involuntarily in Butte today.
At today's law enforcement media briefing, Undersheriff George Skuletich told reporters that a suspect believed to have burglarized and vandalized St. John's Episcopal Church had been arrested.
The man was found hiding in the church in a closet. A caretaker at the church noticed that the door to the closet was locked. It is normally unlocked.
Police entered the closet and removed Joshua Edwards. Edwards is 39 and from Washington State.
The burglary was reported to police Wednesday, and they believe that it occurred Tuesday night.
