A man charged with breaking and entering at a Napoleon church has been bound over to Henry County Common Pleas Court.
Jason M. Rohdy, 37, homeless, appeared by video in Napoleon Municipal Court Thursday for a full preliminary hearing on one count of breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony.
Rohdy waived his right to the hearing, and the case was bound over to the county court for further proceedings.
Bond continued as previously set at $25,000, no 10% allowed.
According to the Napoleon Police Department, Rohdy was charged following a report of a breaking and entering at St. Paul United Methodist Church on West Washington Street Tuesday morning.
St. Paul United Methodist Church Pastor Jennifer Miller previously told the Northwest Signal the church recently started a Warming Prayer Vigil program that assists the homeless by offering overnight services for those in need on weekends.
“Because of this, the safe space we offered to this guest was the safe space this person knew to be most comfortable, even when we weren’t open,” Miller said. “While it is certainly unfortunate, we are thankful that no one was hurt and that hopefully this person will receive the help they need.”
