An official at the Alabama A&M Research Institute arrested for breaking into the facility has avoided a grand jury indictment of the charge.

Kevin Matthews, the institute's compliance officer, was not indicted when his case was presented last month to a Madison County grand jury, court records show.

Matthews was arrested in March and charged with third-degree burglary for attempting to break into the research institute, also known as Carnegie Hall. The facility is located on the Alabama A&M campus and the arrest warrant was sought by campus police.
