BRIDGEWATER (CBS) – A Bridgewater man accused of breaking into a church with his 11-year-old son to steal food was ordered held without bail Monday.

WBZ-TV’s Sera Congi reports

Police say a witness called them after seeing 52-year-old Michael Varano and his son going through the kitchen cabinets at the St. Thomas Aquinas parish center Friday night.

Varano and his son were arrested and charged with breaking and entering.  Varano is also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a child.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports.

He was arraigned in Brockton District Court Monday and ordered held without bail because he was on probation and already has 18 open cases against him.

Varano was charged last month with breaking into several homes while the residents were away at funerals.

Investigators say he brought his four-year-old daughter on that crime spree.
