If only all criminals were this helpful.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

A 24-year-old man called police to tell them he was trying to break into a church, but he was not having much luck.

Police said the found the man waiting at St. Paul's Lutheran Church. The man told them he had hoped to get married in the church and was trying to use a metal shovel to break through the doors. He told them he figured they could help.

Officers search the man and found marijuana. He then invited them to his home, where he told them they would find more drugs.

They did: He showed them his stash of marijuana and stolen prescription drugs.

The man was arrested on charges of criminal damage to property, possession of drugs and paraphernalia, police said.

Town officals were astounded.

"There aren't many arrests like that," Police Chief Jeff Morris said.
