LE MARS (AP)--Watertown police say they have identified a suspect in the burglary and vandalism of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church last June.

Capt. Ryan Remmers says felony charges of burglary and intentional damage to property are pending against a man from Le Mars, Iowa. The charges each are punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

The suspect currently is in the North Dakota Penitentiary in Bismarck on unrelated charges.

One of the items damaged in the burglary was an antique angel statue imported from Italy that has been at the church for more than a century.
