Posted on April 30th, 2010 No Comments

Four men have been charged with arson in the 2006 burning of St. John’s Presbyterian Church in south Austin. All men were teens at the time of the fire and they face second-degree felony charges and are currently at large. Police and fire officials have been gathering sufficient evidence over the past few years to issue warrants, including statements from a friend and an accomplice who were aware of the plan to commit arson. The fire is estimated to have caused between $30,000 and $50,000 in damage.
