Columbia Man Arrested For Trespassing At Middle School Says He Was Trying to Bless Them

More details are emerging about the Columbia man arrested for violating a trespass warning at the Columbia Public Schools.

53 year old Kelvin Joe was charged with first degree trespassing yesterday (Wednesday).

He was arrested after police confirmed he was seen at the West Middle School on Tuesday, despite being issued a verbal trespass warning for incidents at Gentry Middle School and College Park Christian Academy the week before.

According to a probable cause statement Joe told police he went to the schools to bless them.

He was taken to the Boone County Jail on a ten thousand dollar bond.

A court date has yet to be scheduled.
