Police: Church Burglary Suspect Failed To Register Address Change As Sex Offender

October 29, 2013

An Oil City man, who is charged in one of thirteen church burglaries which occurred in a three-county region on the last week in September and was pegged as a suspect in others, has been identified by police as a convicted sex offender, and now faces charges that he failed to register a change of address as required under the state’s Megan’s Law.

State Police officials say 31 year-old John Biddle failed to notify them that he had moved in June.  State law requires that a registered sex offender file his change of address within three days of a move.

Biddle and 31 year-old Steven Kostenbauder, also from Oil City, were arrested early on the morning of September 30 in the parking lot of a church on Raymilton Road in Frenchcreek Township.  The men were charged with burglary, conspiracy and theft by unlawful taking.

Investigations continue into a dozen other church burglaries that had occurred in the previous few days in Venango, Mercer and Crawford Counties.
