Depravity: Thieving Teens

But the question we have to ask is, “What was Joel Watts doing in Texas at an Assembly of God church?”

The Beaumont Police Department has released the name of one of two teens caught breaking into a church Sunday.

Police say officers responded to the Southside Assembly of God church located at 880 West Cardinal Drive around 2:18 Sunday afternoon.

When they arrived, the police found the church’s pastor holding the teens at gun point. Pastor James McAbee says he had just finished up his service Sunday when he spotted two teenagers breaking into his church’s youth center. Pastor McAbee has a concealed handgun license and held the teens until officers arrived. Pastor McAbee says the two burglars were brothers, age 15 and 17, and they threatened to come back to the scene of the crime in the future.

17-year old John Daniel Benitez, of Beaumont, was booked into the Jefferson County Jail for Burglary of a Building and 2 warrants: one warrant for possession of marijuana and another for possession of drug paraphernalia. He has been arraigned but no bond is listed.

His 15-year old brother was booked in the Jefferson County Detention Center. His name is not being released because he is a juvenile.
