Police: Man falls through church roof, found naked

HICKORY, NC (AP) -

Authorities in Hickory have arrested a man after they say he fell through the ceiling of a church and was found naked inside.

The Hickory Daily Record reports the staff of Resurrection International Church asked police to remove a suspicious man from the building Saturday afternoon after he'd asked to spend the night there.

Police think 46-year-old James Albert Kimrey Jr. of Durham tried to re-enter the church through the roof. They say he apparently took off his clothes because he couldn't get through a gap between a ventilation duct and the framework. He fell through the ceiling and into a conference room. A church member found him Sunday morning in a restroom stall.

Kimrey is being held at the Catawba County Detention Center under a $1,200 secured bond.
