An arson charge has been laid after some damage was done to the room of a home in Bradford.
Emergency services were called to a home on 10 Sideroad around 1 p.m. Monday with reports of a small fire. It appears one room of the home was damaged by a deliberately-set fire. Nobody was hurt. During the investigation in the incident, South Simcoe Police learned a resident of the home had been threatened and some of their property had been stolen or damaged.
As part of the investigation, police executed a search warrant at the same home on Tuesday. A 36-year-old man now faces charges of arson, uttering threats, theft, mischief, and possession of stolen property. Police say the victim and suspect are known to each other.
