OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine (AP) — Police say a hungry burglar helped himself to three frozen pizzas and some ice cream at a church before vandalizing the building.

Pastor Michael Gray said in an email the unidentified burglar ate food and broke the door to the church’s food pantry along with a vase and some other objects. The Journal Tribune reports the suspect got into the Old Orchard Beach United Methodist Church through a door that was left open.

Church officials say they will be more careful with building security.

The church asks members in a Facebook post to “pray for the person or persons” involved in the crime.

Police continue to investigate.
