The Bastrop Police Department made three arrests Friday in connection with the burglary of First Baptist Church last weekend.

A Crime Stoppers tip led to the arrest of Kortland Logan, 21, 604 Hollyhurst Drive. Logan was charged with possession of stolen property-felony and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The marijuana was found in his vehicle.

Black said as of Friday afternoon, all of the stolen property has been recovered with the exception of one TV.
