Police say they've nabbed a man who has been breaking into cars while people were in church.
Jeffrey Johnson is charged with five counts of felonious breaking into motor vehicles, four counts of misdemeanor larceny, and one count of felonious larceny.
Beaufort police say last Sunday they got complaints about vehicles being broken into at Queen Street Baptist Church. Police set up a surveillance team this past Sunday to see if the thief would return. Officers say they spotted Johnson looking into vehicles at the church and when asked for ID, they noticed he had stolen cards from last weekend's break-ins.
Police say at the man's apartment they recovered a laptop computer, a camera, cell phones, and other assorted electronic equipment valued at approximately $4,500.
The 28-year-old Johnson was jailed on a $15,000 secure bond.
