    "A New Jersey man was taken into custody after he tried to walk into St. Patrick's Cathedral with two gasoline cans, two bottles of lighter fluid and two lighters, police said.

    The 37-year-old man from New Jersey, identified by law enforcement sources as Marc Lamparello, pulled up in a minivan on Fifth Avenue around 7:55 p.m. Wednesday, the NYPD's Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller said at a press conference."

    "When the guards caught up to the New Jersey resident and began questioning him, he gave them 'inconsistent and evasive' answers as to why he'd been carrying the gas cans and other items.

    'His basic story was that he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue. [He said] his car had run out of gas,' Miller said.

    When police searched Lamparello's vehicle, however, they discovered it wasn't out of gas."

    "Police initially said Lamparello may have been emotionally disturbed. Miller said he is 'known to police.'"

    I'm hopeful this is just a strange incident that was quickly discovered before harm could be done. People's nerves will be frayed after what happened in Paris.

    The New Jersey man purchased a one-way plane ticket to Rome that was scheduled to take off Thursday night.

    Marc Lamparello, 37, was set to fly to Italy out of Newark Liberty International Airport before he was busted in the Wednesday night incident.

    Law enforcement sources said Lamparello was busted by New Jersey cops inside of a Newark Catholic church last week because he would not leave when it was closing, claiming that he wanted to pray.

    Lamparello was charged with criminal trespassing and resisting arrest in that incident.

    He has been treated for psychiatric problems in the past, according to sources who say family members told investigators he’s not taking medication.

    Thanks for the link. I've been wondering if that was him since we first heard about the case.
