A Salina man admitted that he broke into the church where he was baptized in order to support his drug addiction.
Jonathan Shinn was sentenced to two years and four months in prison for thefts from the Trinity Lutheran Church in February.
He was also ordered to pay more than $4,100 in restitution to the church.
Shinn is also a suspect in a break-in at the church on March 21.
The church’s interim pastor said the congregation tried to help Shinn but the thefts caused significant loses that affected the church’s ability to help others.
