A Madison man has been arrested in connection with two church burglaries in Prairie du Sac and Sauk City.

David A. Jacques, 19, was arrested on four felony counts of burglary after a Sauk Prairie Police Department investigation that led to Jacques as a suspect.

Sauk Prairie police Lt. Travis Hilliard stated in a press release that Jacques was brought in for questioning and allegedly confessed to breaking into the First United Church of Christ on Washington Street in Sauk City and Concordia Methodist Church on 5th Street in Prairie du Sac on April 5.

Jacques also allegedly confessed to burglarizing the First United Church of Christ in the spring of 2014.

At about 7:30 a.m. April 6, police responded to calls from both the First United Church of Christ and the Concordia Methodist Church regarding burglary complaints.

Police determined both churches had been burglarized during the evening hours of April 5, Easter Sunday.

Hilliard said Jacques entered the First United Church of Christ by forcing open a locked door and broke a window at Concordia Methodist Church to get inside.

He was able to steal an undisclosed amount of cash from each church, police said.

Jacques is being held in the Sauk County jail on a $2,000 cash bond.

A pre-trial conference is scheduled for May 15.
