UNION CITY — A borough man is facing felony charges after police accused him of setting fire to several vehicles outside of his occupied house on Jan. 6.
Union City police accuse 36-year-old Adam J. Elder of setting fire to two all-terrain vehicles and two other vehicles while they were parked in close proximity to his residence in the first block of East High Street. Officers who responded to the residence on a report of a disturbance on the late afternoon of Jan. 6 said they were told by witnesses that Elder tried to set the vehicles on fire.
Police found evidence that attempts were made to burn the vehicles, according to information in Elder’s criminal complaint.
Elder was arraigned Tuesday afternoon by Corry District Judge Denise Buell on felony counts of arson, reckless burning, and risking a catastrophe and on misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering. Buell set bond at $50,000.
