ARSON ARREST: Another Firefighter Charged
A second volunteer firefighter was arrested Thursday, accused of setting multiple fires in southern Tama County.
On Monday, police arrested 18-year-old Justin Anderson. He’s the fire chief’s son and a volunteer firefighter.
Investigators say Anderson set at least three vacant homes on fire and set several grass fires.
Now they say he had help. Thursday, officers arrested 19-year-old Joshua Weiermann of Chelsea. He’s charged with aiding and abetting arson.
