TIMMINS POLICE LAY ARSON CHARGE AGAINST LOCAL MAN

Post by Head Honcho » Fri Jan 18, 2019 11:24 am

The Timmins Police Service has charged a local man with Arson stemming from a deliberately
set fire at a South Porcupine apartment building early this morning.

Responding to the fire call on Golden Avenue, Timmins Police Service officers took the
necessary precautions to ensure that none of the occupants of the building were in harm’s way
in regards to the fire.

They then began their investigation and were able to determine that an argument had taken
place between the tenants of the building.

At one point, one of the tenants is alleged to have set a bag of clothes on fire in the building
hallway, with the use of an accelerant.

The fire was noticed and subsequently extinguished by other tenants of the building.
Timmins Fire Department and South Porcupine Fire Department were dispatched to the scene.
The suspect was identified to police and located at the scene.

Other exhibits related to the offence was located and secured as evidence by the Timmins
police Service.

As a result of the incident, Trevor LYNCH, 49, of South Porcupine, has been charged with:

- Arson With Disregard for Human Life contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada

The accused remains in custody and is awaiting a bail hearing slated for this morning at
Provincial Court in Timmins to answer to the charge laid against him.
