[ISP] Arson Charges Filed against Mt. Vernon Man

Entry Description
Posey County – Criminal charges for Arson have been filed against a 25-year-old Mt. Vernon man after an Indiana State Police investigation revealed he intentionally set fire to his residence on New Year’s Day.

Indiana State Police detectives launched a criminal investigation on January 1 after receiving information that a suspicious fire heavily damaged a Mt. Vernon home. During the investigation it was determined that Jack Anderson, 25, allegedly strangled, battered and threatened his live-in girlfriend during the early morning hours on New Year’s Day. Mt. Vernon Police arrived at the residence, but Anderson had already left. His girlfriend did not require medical attention. After Anderson’s girlfriend left the residence to stay with family, he allegedly returned to the residence they shared and started a fire inside the home causing extensive damage. A neighbor called 911 reporting the fire at 6:07 a.m. The fire was eventually extinguished by Mt. Vernon Fire Department.

Later that day, Anderson turned himself in at the Posey County Jail for the charges stemming from battering his girlfriend. Anderson was arrested by Mt. Vernon Police for Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon, Strangulation and Domestic Battery.

The arson investigation was turned over to the Posey County Prosecutor’s Office for their review. Criminal charges for Arson were filed against Anderson on January 10th. Anderson is still incarcerated in the Posey County Jail and currently being held on a $200,000 cash bond.
