Police: "Men" caught with pot after breaking into Ellisville church

ELLISVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - Three men were arrested Tuesday in Ellisville after they were reportedly caught with marijuana inside a church they had broken into.

“In my 27 years of law enforcement, I have never seen the disrespect for a house of worship as I witnessed today,” Ellisville Police Chief Bruce Russell said in a statement.

According to Russell, officers were called to the Church of God on North Court Street around 3 p.m. after a passerby called 911 saying it appeared three men were trying to break into the building.

When they walked into the church, the officers smelled marijuana and heard music playing through the church’s sound system.

Russell said the officers searched the building and found 20-year-old Christopher Clark, 19-year-old Edward Ransom and 19-year-old Damien Newell hiding behind the church’s pulpit and choir loft.

Lt. Scott Wuertz said according to Mississippi law, breaking and entering into a religious building carries a stronger charge and potential sentencing than other break-ins.

“The penalties are a lot steeper. You don’t have to commit as much of a crime for it to become a felony,” said Wuertz. “We don’t play with the laws when it comes to a church. The crime of burglary to a church has a penalty of up to 14 years in prison.”
