When officers arrived he was located in his bedroom, according to police.
Breckenridge was taken into custody without incident by Ptlm. Mark Wetherell. He was then transported to the Rehoboth Police Station where he was booked.
Breckenridge’s bail was set at $10,040.00 and he was transported to the Bristol County Sheriff’s Department located on Ash Street in New Bedford.
Breckenridge will be arraigned at a later date on a charge of rape of a child under 16 by force.
