Halifax police arrest Atlantic Superstore arson suspect
Fire broke out in paper towel section of Halifax grocery store
A 52-year-old Dartmouth, N.S., man is facing charges after allegedly setting a fire in an Atlantic Superstore in Halifax last month, say Halifax Regional Police.
The fire broke out at about 6 p.m. on Oct. 27 in the paper towel aisle of the store on Joseph Howe Drive.
No one was injured but smoke damage caused the business to close overnight. It reopened at 10:30 a.m. the following day.
Police say the man was arrested without incident on Saturday at 5:45 p.m.
He's facing numerous arson and mischief related charges and is expected in Halifax provincial court sometime today.
