An intoxicated man allegedly broke into a church freezer to steal ice cream.

Police say that Andrew Steven Jung, 24, broke a glass door to the kitchen at St. Peters Catholic Church in St. Charlies, Missouri, early March 8. He has been charged with burglary, stealing and property damage.

Jung was spotted walking near the church, very intoxicated and had ice cream on his face and clothing, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Jung later told police he was an "ice cream junkie."

He is currently on probation for the 2010 burglary of another local church.
