Church wasn't a sanctuary for this youth avoiding police

Church did not prove to be a sanctuary for a 15-year-old male hiding from police. The juvenile proved an easy find in a couple of games of “hide and seek” Saturday morning. While hiding out in some bushes on the side of a residence in the 1600 block of Rutgers Court, it soon became apparent he chose the wrong patch of foliage. His hiding place was located in front of a side window in plain view of the 86-year-old resident. When the resident approached the teen, suspecting him of attempting to break into his home, the juvenile took off. Police set up a perimeter and eventually located the boy hiding in another set of bushes, this time in front of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. He was not successful in getting away this time. He was arrested for prowling and resisting officers.
