New Jersey Man Arrested After Trying To Bring Gas Cans Into New York City Cathedral

A New Jersey man is now in jail after police say he tried to bring gas cans into a landmark New York City church.

Police say the man was stopped by ushers at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral Wednesday night.

He was later arrested by police.

Officers say the man had more than four gallons of gasoline, two bottles of lighter fluid and multiple lighters.

They also say no one was hurt.

This incident comes two days after a massive fire caused significant damage to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
