The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Rochester man following an outstanding warrant. Nathan J. Jackson, 23, was apprehended on May 25, 2024, around 3:43 PM for failing to appear on charges of disrupting religious services, conspiracy in the sixth degree, and trespassing.

Jackson’s arrest stems from an incident on Christmas Eve when he, along with three others, allegedly disrupted a church service in Varick by making negative comments about Christianity. The suspects were quickly apprehended by deputies and charged with disrupting a religious service, conspiracy, and trespassing.

Jackson was transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility to await arraignment. The original incident involved collaboration between the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, and Waterloo Police Department. The accused had been released on appearance tickets but failed to show up in court, leading to the warrant for Jackson’s arrest.
