Walgreen's fire brings indictment

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man is indicted for a damaging fire at the store where he worked.

The Dougherty Grand Jury indicted 21-year-old Emmanuel Sylvester for first degree arson.

Prosecutors say on June 15, he lit a bag of charcoal on a shelf at the Walgreen's on Dawson Road after he was reprimanded by his boss.

The fire damage was minor, but smoke ruined about $100,000 worth of merchandise in the business.
