[ARCHIVED] Arrest made in the Investigation of July 2nd Fire at Value Village.

Last night the suspect in the Value Village fire that occurred in the early morning hours of July 2nd turned himself into Investigators at the Marysville Police Department.  

The suspect, a 36-year-old Marysville man, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for a felony charge of Reckless Burning 1st degree. 

In the early morning hours of July 2nd 2017 a witness rode his bicycle the 2 blocks to the Marysville Public Safety building to report that he saw flames coming from the back side of the Value Village Thrift Store, 1334 State Ave. Police and Fire personnel responded to the fire which caused approximately $500,000 in damage.

Marysville Investigators working with the Fire Marshal’s office began working on the cause and origin investigation that night.

In an unrelated burglary investigation, detectives from the North Snohomish County Property Crimes Unit uncovered information as to a suspect in the Value Village fire. On July 6th during a interview associated with the burglary investigation, the suspect made admissions to his role in the Value Village fire. Because of the ongoing investigations with both the burglary and fire, no arrest was made at that time.   

When the suspect was contacted about coming back in for a follow up interview, he turned himself in on July 12th. During the follow up interview, the suspect stated he was attempting to look inside of the trailer when he used a lighter to look inside.  Some clothing was near the door and it caught on fire.

Unrelated additional Burglary and Possession of Stolen Property charges are also pending.
