Manchester Man Arrested for Arson

Manchester Police have arrested a man for arson in connection to a garage fire last month.

22-year old Leroy Edgar was taken into custody Thursday.

The Manchester Fire Department responded to a garage fire at 701 South Third Street in Manchester the morning of August 17th. The fire was quickly extinguished, which prevented it from spreading to the nearby home where Edgar lived.

Edgar has been charged with First Degree Arson, Possession of Incendiary Device and Reckless Use of Fire or Device.

He is being held at the Delaware County Jail without bail.
