Sommerland, a recent resident of Trent, S.D., had evaded law enforcement for the past few years. According to authorities, he damaged a lawn and building in NY Mills six years ago, and then was involved in the theft at Trinity. He and other suspects reportedly smashed a window in order to gain entrance into the church.
