Bond Denied to 3 Arson Suspects
Chief Magistrate Judge Susan Camp denied bond to three of the four men accused of being involved with the General Western Cotton Mill fire on May 12.
According to the report, bond has been denied to the three men charged with arson: Jeromie Hand, 17, of Douglasville, Terry Carringer 18 of Hiram and Adrian Bond, 18 of Shelbyville, TN. Christopher Roberts, 20 of Douglasville, was charged with the lesser crime of criminal damage to property. He was granted $3,500 bond and ordered to go to substance abuse counseling.
A lead sent to Douglasville Police Chief Chris Womack via Facebook was a main focal point of the investigation.
The four kids, described as goth, were using aerosol cans to get high in the building and lit several fires which lead to the eventual destruction of the mill.
