A Barron County pastor has been arrested after deputies say he stole from church members’ homes.

Deputies took Pastor Jon Paquette, 56, into custody Thursday after a searching warrant.

The investigation is still ongoing, but deputies say Paquette was targeting the homes of church members while they were not home and stealing prescription medications. It’s still undetermined how many houses were robbed.

Paquette is the pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church.
