BRIDGEPORT, CONN. -- A suspect has been arrested in the recent burglary of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Bridgeport police said.

Jesse DaCosta, 39, turned himself in to authorities on Tuesday, police said.

He has been charged with burglary, larceny, and criminal mischief in connection with the May 31 incident at the Park Avenue church, police said.

Taken in the burglary, police said, were $8,300 in cash, an $800 computer tower, and $1,700 in surveillance equipment.

The church, they said, had held an annual church fair to raise money the night before the alleged incident.

Police determined that the suspect had gained access to the church’s management office from a second-story air conditioner.
