Man Sleeping in Highland Church Arrested on Breaking and Entering Charges
The following information was supplied by the Oakland County Sheriff's Department, Highland substation. Arrests and charges do not indicate convictions.
A 23-year-old Fenton man was arrested in Highland after deputies say he broke into Cornerstone Church in Highland. The man was found by police sleeping inside the church.
According to the report, deputies were called to the church on the 4900 block of Hickory Ridge Road on the morning of Dec. 3.
"When we first responded we checked the church and didn't find anyone," Det. Jim Bowie said. "We got called back 40 minutes later and found the man sleeping in the church."
The report states that the man had some of the church's electronic equipment with him, including a camera. "We think he might have intended to take the items from the church, but fell asleep," Bowie said.
The man was arraigned earlier this week on one count of breaking and entering. He was given a $10,000 cash bond and remains in Oakland County Jail.
