    Authorities in Virginia have charged a man in connection with burglaries at two churches.

    After a burglary at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Leesburg, Va., over the weekend of June 25-26, Leesburg police received a tip and charged 30-year-old Brent Andrew Morgan on Friday with burglary and possession of burglarious tools, authorities said.

    Police then worked with Loudoun County Sheriff’s investigators looking into the burglary of the Arcola Methodist Church on June 13. Morgan is accused of taking electronics, including a laptop and two TVs, from the church on Evergreen Mills Road. He has been charged with felony burglary.

    Morgan was also charged in Leesburg with grand larceny in connection with an unreported theft at the residence where he was staying, authorities said.

    Morgan is being held in Fairfax County on unrelated charges.
