Two teens arrested in Glencoe arson

GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) - Two people from Gadsden have been arrested in connection with a fire at a house in Glencoe.

The Etowah County Sherriff's Department, in a statement Wednesday afternoon to FOX6 News, said Jamie Scott Barron, 19, and Jimmy Franklin Vernon, 18, both of Gadsden were arrested and charged with burglary and arson.

Both men were arrested in connection with a fire that occurred Saturday, August 7, at a house on Juanita Street in Glencoe. Investigators said Vernon, who had been evicted from the residence three weeks earlier, retaliated with help from Barron by setting it on fire.

Both men were in the Etowah County Detention Center on $5,000 bond each.
