An Allen County woman was arrested in connection with a structure fire that appeared to have been set intentionally.

The Scottsville Police Department said officers responded about 11 a.m. Wednesday to 171 Veterans Memorial Highway in Scottsville regarding a structure fire.

Investigators found information suggesting a potential arson, and witnesses reported seeing a vehicle leave the scene just before the fire, according to SPD.

Police identified and located a suspect, Christy Beth Jones, 34, of Scottsville.

Jones was found to be in possession of a stolen vehicle, a firearm and illegal drugs, according to SPD.

Jones was arrested on charges of first-degree arson, first-degree burglary, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief, receiving stolen property valued at less than $10,000, tampering with physical evidence and first-degree possession of a controlled substance (meth).

The SPD were assisted by fire departments in Allen County and the Bowling Green Fire Department's K-9.
