A Troy man has been arrested and charged with burglarizing the OCAP and A&A Coin Laundry Wednesday.

John Warren Williams, 58, of Troy, was taken into custody around 2 a.m. Wednesday in connection with burglarizing these two businesses, said Troy Police Chief Anthony Everage.

After a Troy Police officer observed glass broken to the front door of the OCAP Headstart Program building, he saw Williams walking nearby.

Williams was taken into the police station for investigation, when the officer later learned a similar incident occurred at A&A Coin Laundry earlier that night.

The front door of the A&A had also been knocked out to make an entry in the building, and evidence matched what was found in the OCAP building.

Williams faces charges of two counts of burglary third degree. He was taken to the Pike County Jail and his bond has been set at $3,500.
