A $10,000 bond was set Wednesday for a White Hall man accused of breaking into Highland Pellets on Monday.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Charles Hendershot, 53, with breaking or entering.

Reading from an affidavit from Detective Keith Banks, Deputy Prosecutor Lisa McGriff said Sheriff’s Sgt. Courtney Kelley received an alert from a cellular camera that two white males had crawled through a hole that had been cut In the fence at Highland Pellets at 4319 Emmett Sanders Road and entered the complex.

When Hendershot was questioned, he said he and another man had gone fishing and they decided to go into Highland Pellets and look around. He said the other man, who has not been located, ran when deputies arrived. His pickup truck was found parked at St. Marie Park which is seven-tenths of a mile from Highland Pellets.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Hendershot and he was told to come back to court May 12.
