Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Police say alert neighbors helped officers catch a burglar at a Wilmington church.
 
Neighbors called police Thursday afternoon when they spotted a man climbing through the window at the Faith Tabernacle United Holy Church. When officers arrived, police say 27-year-old Emanuel Carr ran out the back of the church and he was caught after a short foot chase.
 
Cpl. Mark Ivey says officers found church members' offering envelopes in Carr's pockets. He's charged with 3rd degree burglary, criminal mischief, theft and criminal trespassing.
