Man indicted accused of setting house on fire while victim was inside
Grand jurors indicted a man Tuesday accused of setting a house on fire with someone asleep inside.
The victim told police Jessie Arcos, 37, was recently released from prison and that Arcos had gone to his grandmother's house asking for things and trying to "scam" her and her son.
Arcos' grandmother owned the back house he reportedly set on fire while her son was living in it.
Police report a neighbor woke them up and the son was able to escape before putting the fire out with a garden hose.
Arcos is held on a $100,000 bond.
