    MILFORD, CT (WFSB/WSMV) — A man from Nashville is accused of burglarizing a church in Milford, CT on Monday because he felt it was supporting LGBT.

Charles Yarbrough, 30, faces hate crime, third-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief charges.

According to police, they responded to the Mary Taylor Church on Broad Street for a report of a possible burglary.

Investigators said they were able to develop a suspect relatively quickly.

Yarbrough told police that he entered the building and damaged the office door because he felt the pastor and the church as a whole were supporting and pushing “the LGBT agenda.”

He is being held on a $50,000 bond.
