We have an update in a church break-in over the weekend. The man accused is on the run after escaping from police at a hospital.

Investigators say Justin Wingate broke in through a wall at Templo La Hermosa on Friday night. When security showed up, he squeezed into a crawl space but was caught by church members when he fell through the ceiling.

Wingate was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital after his arrest. While there, investigators say he asked to use the bathroom and took off through a side door.

If you have any information on his whereabouts call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. Remember you never have to give your name and you could receive a cash reward.
