Two Nabbed In Attempted Church Burglary

Two men are facing charges in Bristol after police say they burglarized a church.

Officers were in the area of Prospect Methodist Church at Summer and Center Streets looking for a dementia patient that wandered off.

It was during the search that the church’s pastor yelled at officers about the crime.

After a brief foot chase, police apprehended 23-year-old Christopher Malino and his 25-year-old Charles Malino.  Both are facing burglary, larceny, criminal mischief, and other offenses.

Both are being held on $75,000 bond.
