Tenant set fire to landlord's security camera, police say
A landlord-tenant dispute in Inwood ended with the arrest of the tenant Thursday after he allegedly set fire to an exterior security camera attached to the house, police said.
Kamarion King, 24, had been arguing with his landlord and used a lighter to set fire to the camera at 3:15 p.m., police said. The landlord's son and daughter were at home at the time of the fire, and they notified their father, who called the police, according to Nassau County police.
The fire was contained to the camera, and no injuries were reported, police said.
King was arraigned Friday on charges of second-degree arson and first-degree reckless endangerment. He was held pending a bail of $100,000 bond or $50,000 cash, online court records show.
He was represented by The Legal Aid Society of Nassau County, which has a policy of not commenting in the early stages of a case.
