EDGAR COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — More information is being released about the crime which led to an area manhunt.

Authorities are still looking for 27-year old Benjamin Hornbook. He’s wanted for “escape” in Indiana and possession of stolen property in Edgar County.

Police say he and a woman broke into a small church in Kansas, Illinois. A man says his wife saw the two try to pry open the door of the parsonage.

The man then drove to the church, called police and stalled the pair until they got there. The woman was arrested, but Hornbrook fled.
