LITCHFIELD, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say four people have been arrested after breaking into a central Minnesota church to look for ghosts.

Meeker County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a burglary alarm at Ness Church in rural Litchfield that went off shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday. The sheriff’s office says the four people got into the church by breaking several windows and smashed part of a monument.

Two men and a woman from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, were arrested, as was a man from Victoria, Minnesota. The three men were expected to appear in court Tuesday, while the woman was released pending investigation.

WCCO-TV (https://cbsloc.al/1PweDaA ) reports Ness Church has long been targeted by vandals. Church board members say ghosts aren’t there, but that the site is where the first five victims of the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862 were buried.
