Police charge teen in post office arson
HEREFORD » Police say they have charged a juvenile with arson after a fire broke out late last year at a Hereford Post Office.
Authorities have charged a juvenile male with arson in relation to a Christmas Day fire that was reported at Hereford Post Office, at the intersection of South Route 100 and South Route 29, according to a release from Pennsylvania State Police.
After the fire was determined to be an arson, the investigation began focusing on a juvenile male in his late teens. Police have not identified the juvenile because of his age, but said that he ultimately admitted to being responsible for starting the fire that significantly damaged the building.
The juvenile is being charged with arson, recklessly endangering another person and criminal mischief.
