VALLEY CITY, N.D. - A second suspect has been arrested in connection with one of several late-September Valley City church burglaries.

Andrew Miklas was detained near Hillsboro on Thursday night, said Officer Randy Schmidt, of the Valley City Police Department.

Miklas, 25, of Valley City, is being held at Cass County Jail, charged with criminal conspiracy to commit burglary in Barnes County and possession of stolen property in Traill County, a Cass County Jail spokeswoman said. All charges are Class C felonies, she said.

Miklas will be sent to Traill County first, then to Barnes County, she said.

Miklas' original arrest warrant from Valley City police was for charges of burglary, which is a felony, and theft of property, a misdemeanor.

Valley City police issued arrest warrants Oct. 30 for Miklas and Nicole Lindermann, 18, of Kathryn, in connection with a burglary at Faith Lutheran Church.

Lindermann turned herself in Oct. 30 and was released from the Barnes County Jail on a $4,000 unsecured appearance bond.

The string of church burglaries happened during the weekend of Sept. 28 and 29. Trinity Lutheran Church, Our Savior's Lutheran Church and the Congregational Church of Christ were burglarized that weekend, along with Faith Lutheran. The Valley City Public Library was also burglarized that weekend.
