Teen Charged with Breaking into Church

A Wayne County teenager has been arrested for allegedly breaking into a church and accessing pornographic material.

18-year-old Tyler Pruitt is charged with six counts of burglary of a church.

He is accused of breaking into Riverside Baptist Church in Wayne County and using a church computer to access pornographic Web sites.

Pruitt is also accused of using a church phone to dial "1-900" numbers.
