Lubbock Man Accused of Setting Fire to Trailer, Killing a Dog
A Lubbock man was arrested after it's said a dog was killed after he set a trailer on fire.
KAMC News reports that crews responded to a camper trailer on fire in the 100 block of East 76th Street on Tuesday, October 11th. Investigators have determined that the owner of the trailer had gotten into an argument with the suspect, 42-year-old Burl Johnson.
Lubbock Police had actually been called during the argument earlier that day. When speaking with Johnson, he allegedly said "I wanted to burn the last thing that meant nothing to me." He was heard saying this on body camera footage.
After the fire was put out, a dead dog was found inside the trailer. It was found with fire-related injuries.
Johnson was arrested and charged with Arson of Habitation or Place of Worship and Injury to a Child, Elderly, Disabled Individual with Intent. He remains in the Lubbock County Detention Center on bonds totaling $56,000.
