Police Charge Man With Arson


August 2, 2017

The Glasgow Fire Department responded to a fire at the La Casa Hotel on Friday. When they arrived they discovered that someone had started a gas can on fire and luckily the flames were nearly out. The small blaze caused some damage to the building, burning the window casing on one of the rooms.

The suspect, Melvin Thompson, had fled the scene on foot heading east, and was apprehended by the Glasgow Police Department near the Holiday. While making the arrest, officers discovered that Thompson had been drinking and was highly intoxicated. He now faces charges of negligent arson and is currently being held at the Valley County Jail.
