Bond tripled for monk who attempted to kidnap teen

A monk charged with trying to kidnap a teenage girl almost got out of jail, until his bond was raised.

Thomas Chmura is being held in the Lake County jail for child abduction.

He is a monk at St. Benedict’s Abbey in Wisconsin.

Police arrested him last month for trying to abduct a teenage girl in Antioch.

Chmura posted his original bond Thursday, but then a judge tripled it and ordered him back into custody.

Prosecutors say the bond was changed because there’s a children’s facility where Chmura worked.
