An alleged rosary thief was foiled by a Priest Saturday after the clergyman grabbed his butterfly knife.

21 year old Dustin Frank is charged with first degree burglary.

According to reports, the priest stopped by a local church Saturday evening on business.

He saw the alarm had been activated, and then witnessed Frank walking up from the basement holding a box full of items, including cross necklaces and rosaries.

The priest also observed a knife in the box, and grabbed for it before running towards the arctic entryway.

Frank exited the building through a window, and was later found by the Alaska State Troopers lying in the woods near Eagan Drive.
