A Trinity County man was recently arrested on arson-related charges in connection to a recent series of structure fires.
Shortly after 5 AM on August 11, deputies responded to reports of multiple structure fires at Old Bridge RV Park in Lewiston. Fire personnel successfully extinguished the fires.
Witnesses told deputies that a man was seen walking away from the fires shortly after they were ignited, the Sheriff’s Office said. Investigators soon located the man, 65-year-old Owen Wroblewski of Weaverville, and identified him as the primary suspect.
He was taken into custody and booked at the Trinity County Detention Facility on a variety of charges.
Investigators also searched Wroblewski’s home and reportedly located more evidence connecting him to the alleged crimes.
