SoVaNow.com / September 16, 2013


A 21 year old South Boston man was arrested Friday and charged with setting a fire that destroyed the pool building at the American Legion Post 8 on Jeffress Boulevard.

Javante Devon Jordan of Shepherd Street was indicted Thursday on one count of arson involving an unoccupied building and one count of destruction of property valued at more than $1,000.

The South Boston Fire Department had responded to the fire at the Post 8 pool building back on June 27. Special agents with the Virginia State Police Arson and Bomb Unit were called in to assist in the investigation, and evidence recovered at the fire scene and at other locations during the course of the investigation led to Jordan’s arrest.

He is currently being held in the Halifax Regional Jail under at $7,500 bond.

In other reports from the South Boston Police Department, Roosevelt Augusta Jones, 53, of Nathalie was incarcerated at the Blue Ridge Regional Jail on a $1,000 secured bond for failure to appear in court.

Also being held until he was sober was 22 year old Daniel Matthew Rowland of Scottsburg, who was charged with being drunk in public. Ryan Keith Angel of Brookneal was also incarcerated, charged with driving under the influence.
