Minnesota Man Breaks into Mormon Church to Piss on Floor and Have a Smoke

Judging from those eyes, Jacob Jeffrey Shwartz's alleged "drug impairment" may be from some Mary J. Wanna.
When you have the urge to break things, urinate, and smoke cigarettes, where better to do it than a Mormon church, right? Wrong -- just ask Minnesota native Jacob Jeffrey Schwartz, who broke into a Mormon church Friday morning to do each of the aforementioned activities.

Scottsdale police say Schwartz, 20, barricaded himself inside a Scottsdale Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 90 minutes about 2 a.m. Friday.

A neighbor called police after she said she saw a man break into the church on the 6800 block of East Gold Dust Avenue, which is directly adjacent to Chaparral High School.

Scottsdale police Sergeant Mark Clark tells New Times that Schwartz did some minor damage in the church, including breaking a glass fire extinguisher case, urinating, and smoking cigarettes inside the church.

Apparently, Schwartz tried to exit the church several times once the cops arrived, but would run back in as soon as he saw police officers.

Police negotiators convinced Schwartz to surrender after an hour and a half, and he was transported to the Scottsdale city jail.

But Schwartz, who police say exhibited signs of alcohol and drug impairment, wasn't quite done racking up felony charges.

Once he was transported to the jail, police say he got into a scuffle with detention officers, adding a charge of assault on an officer atop burglary and criminal damage charges.

Clark says it isn't known whether Schwartz is of the Mormon faith, and his motives for breaking into the church are unknown.

I am his mother, this is a very angry boy who has gotten himself into some very big trouble. Why was he in AZ anyway? I am outraged at the stupidity of the partying of our young people today. This is the fun in alcohol?

just amazing what a drunken mistake will cost a personhe ll probably get of pretty easy the police seem to have him figured out when i was a kid our big thing was to go out to the quarter mile and watch races and drink beeror sit in the safeway parking lot and shoot the breeze go home pass out go to school then work in the afternoon and repeat the above. i didnt have time to get into to much trouble i was going to school and working 36 hours a week when i was 16 and 17. im surprised my mom didnt chew the mgr out since we all went to the same church and he had me working sunday mornings.

He was probably just trying to send a message to that neo-Nazi associator Russell Pearce.......hey man, everybody hates that guttermouth demagogue. And that METH rat did, just that. Sending a message to Russell Pearce like no other.

Where can I contribute to raising bail for this guy? BTW mormonism isn't a religion, it's a cult.

Finally, someone did the right thing. This guy actually has his shit together. He pissed on a church and hit a jail cop. He's probably the only sane person in the news today.

This kid is my ex from a year ago. And he is a piece of shit and should probably sit in jail for the rest of his life because he is a menace to society. No this was not a hate crime this was a fucking loser who got so messed up on who knows what that he broke into a church at 2 in the am... like really. Oh yea and he was warrants in minnesota for failing to appear in court and pay fines. Hes a real stand up guy... not. And if that really is his mom in the post above this shes retarded because if she knew anything about her son she would know that he worked in arizona all winter...

Hate crime? Other than breaking a window to go inside nothing was misplaced or trashed.. not everything is a hate crime, genius. I'm sure would also think that if the officer he assaulted was black & a female that he hates black people and women..

Your an idiot. That was easy for me to say.Bet you never did anything stupid in your life.If you knew this boy you would know there had to be something very wrong for him to do something like that. I dont believe he did this.The boy doesnt have a hateful bone in his body, he is a very good boy!

Katie D

I really dont think you know what your talking about. The boy is neither a meth head or a religion basher. You have only heard the story from the so wonderful police, but from what I have been told is there was another story behind this and when they do a dna sample of the boys urine I think we will find there is a little more to this story. I always beleived you were innocent until proven guilty, they already passed guilt on the boy before he was able to tell his story. Dont you all feel the press and the police are some sort of evil cult?

Considering the state of mind he was probably in, or the lack there of due to being messed up, it could have been his house or better yet.. yours. Not everything is a message or a hate crime.. quit reading so far into this.. I'M SURE HE WAS BLACKED OUT PISS DRUNK

he's not a meth rat you elitist prick. just a dumb kid who made a dumb, drunken mistake (REALLY dumb mistake). like everyone has made a bad intoxicated mistake at some point in their lives.

I can't go along with on this one, Walter.If people want to believe in the spirit world, even if the story defies intelligent reasoning, as does the God story, then so be it. Their church should be sacrosanct.What is rather weird is that dude was in there for 90 minutes before the Scottsdale coppers showed up. Other than stopping the occasional speeding Bentley convertible, there can't be that much for the cops to do in Snobbsdale.

oh ya, and jenn, quit stalking my life, why do you care if i have a warrant in mn? or unpaid fines? do you still miss me that much? bummed out your a slut and got prego by some fat loser? you fucked up not me, im the one who doesnt have a kid at 20, you do..dont blame me or get mad at me, you spread your legs for him, not me. dont try and take your anger out on me, cuz we all know i may have a record, but your a compulsive liar, a manipulator and a slut.. personally id rather have a record than all that. and thats not even a dent into the reality of jenn delong, so if anyone is gonna hide their kids or hide their wifes, they should be doing so because theirs bi polar psychos like you roaming the streets....

hey jenn before you start talking shit because you know absolutely nothing, get the real story..everything got dropped because they know i didnt break into a damn church..i got jumped by 2 dudes and had a gun to my head, the dna on the cig wasnt mine, the piss wasnt mine, and swat came and helped me. so get your shit right. whos the girl who cheated and got knocked up by some fat ugly faggot?? oh you did!!! half of my trouble came from you in the first place in minnesota!!!

Oh the press is for sure. For real. Just look at these people judging this person they don't even know and making assumptions about him based on "information" they got from a bias BLOG. Honestly. Get a life people. I've known him for many years. He's not a "meth rat." This is not a hate crime. He's a good person who made a drunken mistake.

Bottom line, get over yourselves. I'm sure you're all perfect people who have never done anything stupid in your lives. So you all should go back to your perfect little lives & mind your own goddamn business.

I Agree with you completely.A dumb ass with a name like Johnny White Man thats a hate crime in its self

He's a METH freak in my book, you puny little asswipe. Because it seems to rampant and common among them, here in Cactus Country. And yeah, he's "dumb" just like you. Perhaps you two are related?

Breaking into a building and trashing it is more than a mistake. It's a crime. Licentious scum like you make excuses for these misfits. A month in Sheriff Joe's jail wearing pink underwear, eating green bologna, and working under the hot Arizona sun will cool his jets.

Chad, you may well be correct: I don't suffer fools gladly. Social conservatives top that list for me and I'm impolitic enough to say so.

If they want their church to be sacrosanct, they should keep their damned noses out of politics and out of other peoples' morals. The Mormons are a pernicious influence around here. If they want to be uptight, fine, but leave the rest of us the fuck alone. Forget the Mexicans, when can we start deporting the Mormons to Utah?

Cops were outside the church for the 90 minutes, trying to get him to come out.

Hey Johnny Knot it All White Man.. shut up! Yeah, I agree.. he is a moron for allowing himself to get that wasted and not watch his drinks carefully.. someone drugged him... BUUUT as intelligent as you THINK you are.. he doesn't/hasn't done METH ever in his entire life. Pull your head out of your behind and wake up and smell the coffee.. People make mistakes ESPECIALLY when blacked out just because you haven't been caught in the act doesn't mean you should go around pointing your self-righteous finger around. Sit down & shut the heck up

ah yes. licentious. as a person currently attending law school, i often use that term to describe myself. & Arpaio is a self-righteous psychopath. no pre-trial detainee should be submitted to his ridiculousness.
