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.
