NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Witnesses in Kaufman County help lead deputies to a suspect accused of breaking into a church.

Calls to the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department began coming in just before 11 a.m. on Monday. Witnesses reported that someone had just broken into the Hillcrest Baptist Church and that the person had a car parked in the church parking lot.

Deputies arrived, along with the newest member of their K-9 unit. The K-9 searched the building for suspects and found nothing, but soon led deputies outside.

The suspect, Louis Lee Underwood, was found on a gravel road behind the church. He was arrested and charged with burglary of a building and fraudulent use/possession of identifying information.

The 25-year-old Garland man had warrants out for his arrest from McKinney police, Dallas police, and Dallas County Sheriff’s.

Underwood is being held without bond in the Kaufman County Jail.
