LCSD: Orangeburg County man accused of setting fire to a home in Pelion
COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department says an Orangeburg County man is accused of using a water bottle filled with gasoline to to start a house fire on Saturday. Deputies say 56-year-old Tracy Lynn Stogner is charged with five counts of attempted murder, second degree arson, stalking and using a destructive device.
“Based on evidence deputies documented at the scene and witness interviews, Stogner lit and tossed a water bottle containing gasoline through a window into a home on Pelion Road early Saturday morning,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Stogner started a fire and it resulted in significant property damage to the home.”
The sheriff says Stogner followed one of the victims home from a nearby store. According to deputies, Stogner had a previous relationship with the woman.
“Stogner had left the scene before we got there,” Koon said. “We tracked him down later Saturday and arrested him without incident.”
Authorities say Stogner was booked at the Lexington County Detention Center.
