Police have arrested a Bridgewater man for breaking into a church with his 11 year old son as a supposed accomplice. Police are also reporting that the church was not their first break in. Michael Varano, 52, reportedly broke into the St. Thomas Aquinas Church on Center Street this weekend in Bridgewater.

Bridgewater authorities caught Varano and his son leaving the rear door of the church with food in their hands. Witnesses also spotted the two going through the church late Friday night with flashlights in hand.

This is not the first reported criminal activity for Varano, who was caught breaking into more than 15 homes with his 4 year old daughter in April of this year. Father Joe Raeke of St. Aquinas Parish said that he was confused because "he doesn't understand why Varano would steal something that the church could have given him for free." Varano faces 50 different charges for various crimes in Massachusetts and bringing his children along. His 11 year old son will also be arraigned in juvenile court.
