HOUMA, LA (WVUE) -

Houma Police say they caught a burglar hiding inside a closet in a church. 

Officers say just before 10 p.m. Sunday they got a call that a man broke into the Mt. Horeb Baptist Church on Railroad Ave. When they arrived, officers say they noticed a window pane removed. 

Police say they ended up finding 20-year-old Van Royal Vincent hiding in a closet. They booked him with simple burglary of a religious building. 
Investigators say they're now looking for two other men they think may have been with Van Royal Vincent before he broke into the church.  

If you have any information about this case that could help investigators, call Houma Police or the Bayou Region Crimestoppers at 1-800-743-7433.
