SOUTHINGTON - A local man was charged Thursday for allegedly stealing a safe from a local church.

Dylan Fournier, 20, of Bristol Street, is accused stealing the safe from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 145 Main Street, on March 18, according to a press release from Southington police. Details on what was in the safe and if it was recovered by the church were not immediately available.

Police responded to the area on a report of a burglary at the church and found the safe stolen and property damage done by the suspect during the process of the burglary.

Southington police detective collected several types of evidence and on Wednesday, they received a notice from a state lab that identified Fournier as a suspect.

Fournier was charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and sixth-degree larceny. He was released on a promise to appear during his arraignment in New Britain Superior court on Friday and due back there on Oct. 17.
