Forensic Lab Links Evidence to Suspect in Southington Church Burglary: Police

A man accused of stealing a safe from a church in Southington in March has been arrested after some help from the state forensic lab.

The burglary at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, at 145 Main St., was reported on March 18. Police said a safe was stolen from the church and property was damaged during the burglary.

Investigators collected evidence and the State of Connecticut Forensic Laboratory contacted detectives Wednesday after identifying Dylan Fournier, 20, of Southington, as a suspect, according to police.

He was held on a court-set $50,000 bond and is expected to appear in New Britain Superior Court Friday.
