Tobago teen charged for arson

A 15-year-old boy is expected to appear before the Scarborough Juvenile Court on Wednesday charged with arson in connection with an incident which occurred over the weekend.

Officers of the Moriah Police Station responded to a report of a house on fire at Content Trace, Mason Hall, around 10:30 pm on Saturday.

When officers arrived they observed the wooden structure, which is occupied by a 47-year-old man, engulfed in flames.

The house was completely destroyed in the blaze.

The teen was arrested in connection with the incident on Monday.

He was positively identified in an identification parade and subsequently charged by Sgt. Phillip the following day.
