A man and his nephew were taken into custody outside a San Marcos church.
San Diego County sheriff’s deputies waited outside Templo Calvario Church around 12:30 a.m. Monday and jumped on the two men.
They say the men forced the church's front door open, took valuables including cash and then ran out the back.
Deputies had the church surrounded and caught up with the men as they attempted to flee.
One deputy used a taser in the arrest of Daniel Arango, 26, and Luis Arango, 18.
The man and his nephew face charges of burglary and resisting arrest, deputies said.
The church is located on Smilax Road just east of State Route 78.
