PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man accused of burglarizing a church who was released from jail due to overcrowding failed to show up for his court appearance Wednesday.

Jeffrey Wilson, 45, was arrested last week on burglary charges. Police said he broke into the Central Christian Church, 1844 SE Cesar Chavez Blvd., on Feb. 25 and again on March 24.

His bail had been set at $10,000, but he was released Sunday because of overcrowding at the jail.

He was due back in court for a preliminary hearing Wednesday morning, but he didn't show up.

A bench warrant has been issued for his arrest.

If you know where he is, call Portland police.
