Arrest made after Archdiocese of Louisville break-in
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - At least one man is being treated for injuries after a foiled break-in at the Archdiocese of Louisville Sunday.
Shortly before 5 p.m., Louisville Metro Police responded to a burglary alarm at the organization's administrative offices at 212 East College Street.
"The alarm company contacted us," said Brian Reynolds, Archdiocese of Louisville Chancellor. "They also contacted the police."
"Once they got here, they noticed a broken window on the side of the building," said LMPD Sgt. Steven Maron. "One of our officers arrived on scene and went in with his K-9 to search and clear the building."
Inside, the K-9 and officer located a man hiding beneath a desk in a second-story office.
The K-9 helped apprehend the intruder, described by police as a white male in his early thirties.
According to police, during the apprehension the suspect sustained bite marks from the K-9.
Paramedics transported the suspect to University Hospitals by ambulance for evaluation.
Following an evaluation and police interview, the suspect will be lodged at Metro Louisville Corrections.
Archdiocese of Louisville staff on scene told WAVE 3 News the damage done to the building included a broken out first-story window and ransacked desk drawers throughout several offices. According to staff, no electronics nor religious items were stolen or damaged.
While Reynolds said he's disturbed by the break-in, he is grateful officers responded quickly.
"We have an excellent police force here in the city and they responded right away," said Reynolds.
