Deputies believe Barrientos-Adams unlawfully entered the Pine Crest Baptist Church on Mountain View Road with the intent to commit a theft, Ware said. Barrientos-Adams did not take any items from the church, Ware said.
“Once inside when he saw a surveillance camera, he fled the scene,” Ware said.
He was booked into the Hall County jail on a charge of second-degree burglary and remains held without bond, Ware said.
