MANATEE COUNTY, Fla.- Some Manatee County residents have a new neighbor thats causing a bit of controversy. 

Pastor Terry Jones from Gainesville's Dove World Outreach Center has moved to East Manatee County.  Jones is best known anti Muslim messages. 

Back in 2010 he organized a mass burning of the Muslim's holy book --the Koran.  Even though he did not go through with the 2010 burning Jones' efforts gained him worldwide attention which has not stopped especially since he has another burning scheduled for later this year. 

The situation has left many of Jones' new neighbors worried about their safety.  Coming up at ABC 7, at 6 we talk to neighbors about those concerns.
