Church Incident

Posted on 29th January 2016 at 09:11

Jeffrey Nathen Nelson, 38, is in custody after an attempted burglary was reported last night at the Latter-Day Saints Church on North Pacific Avenue, next to Ostrander Road. A 911 call came in just before 9 last night, claiming that there was a man inside the building, smoking marijuana and attempting to take tools. It was also reported that the suspect was armed with a machete. The man ran as Deputies responded to the scene; a K-9 was also called in. Deputies eventually met up with Nelson at a nearby transient camp, where they supposedly found the machete. Nelson was arrested without further incident, and is now being held for attempted second-degree burglary, attempted third-degree theft and making false statements to police.
