SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - Police have arrested a man accused of stealing credit cards from two Spearfish churches on Christmas Eve.

The 34-year-old man from Norman Park, Georgia, was arrested Friday in Rapid City after he was spotted by police and fled into a business, where he barricaded himself in a restroom. Police say the suspect did not allow another person in the restroom to leave and destroyed part of the ceiling while trying to escape from law enforcement. No injuries were reported.

The suspect is facing charges of obstruction, false imprisonment, destruction of private property, impersonation to deceive law enforcement and two out-of-state felony warrants.
