HICKORY, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities in Hickory have arrested a man after they say he fell through the ceiling of a church and was found naked inside.  

 
The Hickory Daily Record reports (http://bit.ly/UTdRYY ) the staff of Resurrection International Church asked police to remove a suspicious man from the building Saturday afternoon after he'd asked to spend the night there.   
 
Police think 46-year-old James Albert Kimrey Jr. of Durham tried to re-enter the church through the roof. They say he apparently took off his clothes because he couldn't get through a gap between a ventilation duct and the framework. He fell through the ceiling and into a conference room. A church member found him Sunday morning in a restroom stall.   
 
Kimrey is being held at the Catawba County Detention Center under a $1,200 secured bond.
