On March 23, 2021 at approximately 10:37 a.m., New York State Police at Oneonta arrested Jason K. Manderville, age 34 of Oneonta, NY for the misdemeanors of Menacing in the second degree and Petit Larceny. 

Troopers were dispatched by Otsego County 911 to a report of a domestic dispute at a residence on Oneida Street in the town of Oneonta.  An investigation revealed that after a dispute, Manderville threatened a victim with a chainsaw.  Manderville was located in a wooded area behind his residence and arrested. 

Manderville was processed at SP Oneonta and virtually arraigned by a judge.  He was released on his own recognizance and order to appear in the town on Oneonta court on April 6, 2021.  The victim was issued a stay away order of protection. 

At approximately 3:05 p.m., on the same date, New York State Police at Oneonta arrested Manderville on the felonies of Arson in the third degree and Criminal Contempt in the first degree. 

At approximately 2:46 p.m., Troopers, Oneonta Fire Department and Oneonta EMS were dispatched to a report of a house fire at the location where troopers arrested Manderville just a few hours earlier.  When troopers arrived, they found the residence fully engulfed.  Troopers located Manderville in a wooded area near State Highway 205 and he was taken into custody. 

An investigation revealed that he had returned to the residence and intentionally started a fire.  He also violated the order of protection that had been issued a few hours prior. 

Manderville was arraigned for the felony charges and remanded to the Otsego County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.
