A 42-year-old man has been charged after a break-in at a Boutiliers Point church.

At around 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, RCMP were called to St. Margarets Bay Rd. to investigate a report of a man walking around the area with an axe.

Officers were then told that the suspect was inside a church and he may have broken his way in.

When they arrived at the building, they found the door ajar and damaged.

Mounties say they found the suspect sitting inside in a chair with the axe next to him and there was significant damage to the property.

Kevin Arthur Whiting has been charged with break and enter, mischief over $5,000 and possession of break-in tools. He is scheduled to appear in court today.
