Lethbridge police lay arson charges following downtown fire
Lethbridge police have charged a 43-year-old man in connection with a fire at a downtown business last month.
Emergency crews were called to a fire in the 600 block of 4 Avenue South at around 5:30 a.m. on April 5.
Investigators determined the fire, which damaged a neighbouring business, was suspicious.
After viewing surveillance footage, police were able to identify a suspect thought to have deliberately set the fire.
On Thursday, police announced Jason Frank Busby, 43, had been charged with arson and possession of incendiary material.
He is scheduled to appear in court on May 23.
