Police: Man turns self in after breaking into church

| July 21, 2013

CONCORD, N.C. –  A man is behind bars after turning himself in for breaking into a church. Police even asked him why he was confessing. He told them it had been weighing on his mind.

Exactly one month ago, someone broke into Calvary Lutheran Church, in Concord, and stole a laptop computer and a monitor. According to police, the thief damaged doors, a window and a prayer box in the process.

"We're a nonprofit organization," church member Kristi Wilson said. "We're here to help people. So I was very upset when I heard about the burglary."

Weeks went by, and no one was caught. The church fixed the window, and members started to forget about the crime, but 20-year-old Jordon Cassell didn't forget. He turned himself in.

"I think that just shows how God works in everybody's heart," Wilson said. "It's just amazing."

In an arrest report obtained by Channel 9, Cassell said the "thought of him breaking into a church was weighing on his mind and he wanted to set things right."
