    Two men were caught after allegedly stealing from cars parked at churches.

    Surveillance footage captured at the Adventist Fellowship Church on 21st street got clear photos of the suspects in May.

    That footage led to names and vehicle descriptions. Detectives said a routine patrol led to officers finding the suspects’ car. Both men were inside.

    Officers arrested Kent Thompson and Jeremy Dechaine on three complaints of burglary and one complaint of possession of a stolen credit card.

    Officers linked the pair to a credit card stolen from a church in Sapulpa, where they spent more than $200 at a local Kohl’s.
