An Adams man is being held without bail after police arrested him in connection with two burglaries of businesses late Sunday night on Columbia Street.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that 31-year-old Christopher Jelley was found walking down the street carrying a television after police allegedly identified him, using surveillance footage, as a man that used a cement block to break through the glass doors of Racing Mart and Val’s Pipe & Package Store and emptying both cash registers of $90 each.

The break-in occurred around 2:15 AM on Monday. Jelley pleaded not guilty Monday on charges of malicious destruction of property exceeding $1,200, breaking and entering a building at night to commit a felony, and larceny from a building, all for the incident at Val’s. Further charges are pending.
