Nine LDS Missionaries Interrupt Car Burglary In Progress At LDS Chapel In Hooper, Utah; Burglar Subsequently Arrested

If you're going to break into a car and steal a stereo, don't do it in the parking lot of a chapel where missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are having a conference. That's the lesson learned by one drug addict who's in jail today as a result.

The Ogden Standard-Examiner and KSL Channel 5 report that a man subsequently described to be high on drugs had broken into a car parked at the LDS chapel located at 4555 W. 4000 South in Hooper, Utah. He was removing the stereo when nine LDS missionaries suddenly emerged from the chapel. From the account given by the Weber County Sheriff's Department on their Facebook page:

"The missionaries asked the suspect to please re-install the stereo, which he did. The suspect had a conversation and a short cry with the missionaries. They took his picture. He then left in a vehicle. The missionaries got the license plate".

Later that same day, the suspect was found at a different church in Hooper. The stolen vehicle he was using had broken down, so he decided to get high and wait to be found. And yes, he was found -- and arrested.
