A North Baltimore man faces arson and burglary charges for allegedly setting fire to a home in NB.
Robert J. Baird, 64, who lives on East Walnut Street, appeared in Wood County Common Pleas Court last week, facing two counts of Aggravated Arson, which are first- and second-degree felonies. He also faces one count of burglary, a second-degree felony, in connection with a fire that was set at 108 Rhodes Ave., next to the Wood County Park District Slippery Elm Trail property on East Broadway.
The property was in the process of being purchased by the park district. Baird was caught in the act, on the district’s security equipment.
Baird is scheduled to appear in court March 20 for a hearing.
