could this be a case of attempted arson? he certainly had the right and enough gear to undertake such an act, all we need now is a motive.

Of course it is. Who "cuts through" a church with gas cans, lighter fluid and bbq lighters downtown Manhattan.

"It's hard to say what his intentions were, but I think the totality of circumstances of an individual walking into an iconic location like St Patrick's Cathedral carrying over four gallons of gasoline, two bottles of lighter fluid and lighters and lighters is something we would have great concern over," Miller said.
