Thieves stole from homes, but talked religion

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Nashville say two young burglars were covering their intent by talking religion.

Police arrested 19-year-old Dante Leo Johnson and a 17-year-old, charging them with aggravated burglary.

The Tennessean reported the teens were going through a neighborhood, knocking on doors while carrying church bulletins. Police said if someone answered the door, one of the youths would talk about religion.

But police said three homes in the area were burglarized, with electronic equipment stolen.

Authorities said they recovered stolen goods from a car the suspects were driving.
