NEW CITY -A 35-year-old man who was accused of breaking into a Valley Cottage church to use its phone to call a sex hotline was arraigned last night before Clarkstown Justice Scott Ugell.

James Macnair, whose address was not available last night, was arrested by Clarkstown police yesterday afternoon when he was accused of breaking into Elim Alliance Church on Lake Road and using the church's phone to call a sex hotline number, Ugell said.

Ugell said Macnair told police that he broke into the same church Friday for the same purpose.

Macnair was charged with two-counts of burglary, felonies, and misdemeanors of possession of burglars tools and petty larceny. Ugell said because of his two felony convictions in the past, Macnair was held without bail and will return to court at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow.
