MIAMI COUNTY — The Piqua man who burglarized a pair of churches as well as two homes last summer entered a guilty plea in Miami County Common Pleas Court on Thursday.

Dustin L. Connor, 29, entered a plea of guilty on a bill of information on four counts of felony charges. Connor waived his right to a grand jury.

He pleaded guilty to third-degree felony burglary, fifth-degree vandalism, fourth-degree burglary with trespassing and fifth-degree felonious assault. Connor assaulted a corrections officer when he was incarcerated in the Miami County Jail.

Connor pleaded guilty to vandalizing and stealing a computer from Snyder Road Church of God in Springcreek Township. Connor also admitted to breaking into the Victory Baptist Church, located at 1601 South St., Piqua and to breaking into two residences. He was arrested by Piqua police on Aug. 2.

Connor could serve more than six years of prison time for all charges and up to a $20,000 fine. He remains in the Miami County Jail with a $25,000 bond.

Miami County Common Pleas Court Judge Jeannine Pratt set Connor’s sentencing for Nov. 30 with Judge Christopher Gee presiding.
