Catholic school locked down after trespassing

Man had repeatedly visited school

Issues of faith and security were the cause of a school lockdown Wednesday at St. Joseph's Cathedral School in Jefferson City.

According to a press release that St. Joseph's Principal Spencer Allen sent out to the parents of students, officers with the Jefferson City Police Department arrested an unnamed individual after he trespassed on school property, forcing the school to lock down.

The man has had a history with the school. In the letter, Allen said the suspect came to the school several weeks ago, complaining that teachers were teaching the Catholic faith to students.

At that time, school officials asked him not to return to the church, but he did so anyway. He was then arrested for trespassing and informed not to return to St. Joseph's Cathedral or School.
