An 18-year-old man is facing several charges in connection with a break, enter and theft at a church in Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska on April 19.

Kenny Rockwell, from Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska, appeared in Grand Falls Provincial Court on Tuesday. He is charged with break and enter, theft, mischief, possession of a controlled substance, failing to comply with the conditions of an undertaking and breach of probation.

A 16-year-old girl from Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska was also arrested in relation to this investigation. She has been released on conditions.

Rockwell was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Edmundston Provincial Court on May 20.

The investigation is continuing.
