A couple accused of stealing from a church that had sheltered them since Hurricane Harvey flooded their home have been arrested.
Montgomery County sheriff's deputies picked up Blake Mayon and his wife, Naomi Johnston, on Friday on felony theft charges.
The couple had stayed at Dacus Baptist Church in Montgomery since they were displaced by the August hurricane. The church noticed toward the end of their stay that tools, a television and a sound system were missing.
Mayon was arrested as he was leaving a Walmart store in a truck the church had given him. Johnston was arrested later.
