The suspect was identified as Andrew Bryce Ledwith, 45, who had previous addresses in Sidney and Utah.
Ledwith was found to be in possession of stolen property from the Troy Freewill Baptist Church. It was also learned that Ledwith had an arrest warrant out of Greene County for non-support.
Ledwith was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail on a charge of breaking and entering along with the warrant from Greene County.
