While patrolling the area of Sparta Highway April 22, a deputy noticed a suspicious vehicle parked in front of St. Mary's Church. When the officer pulled into the parking lot, the car attempted to drive away. Upon initiating a traffic stop, the officer asked the driver and passenger why they were parked at the church and the driver answered that they were having problems and came to the parking lot to pray.
