FARGO - Police responded to a break-in early today at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in south Fargo, but it was unknown whether any-thing was taken, Sgt. Julie Hinkel said.

The suspect broke a main-floor window to gain access to the church at 710 10th St. S., she said.

"Someone did go through a number of files, throwing papers around," she said.

Police arrived on the scene within a minute of the call at 1:29 a.m., Hinkel said. The caller reported seeing the suspect go through a window on the south side of the church and flashlight movement inside the church.

A K-9 unit from Clay County was used to search the building, but no one was found inside.

An individual found walking in the area was detained, interviewed and released, and his information was forwarded to investigators, Hinkel said.
