Samone Natalie Pacheco, 21, of Martinsville, was indicted by a Martinsville Grand Jury on Monday for two counts of arson of personal property and arson of a dwelling.
In records on file with the Martinsville Circuit Court Clerk’s Office, MPD Officer J.M. Washburn was one of the first responders to a fire at an apartment complex on Windsor Lane. On April 2, just after 10 p.m., Martinsville police officers along with Martinsville Fire and EMS responded to 719 Windsor Lane. When officers arrived, the structure was on fire and a resident told them they had just seen someone leave the property on foot.
Police caught up with Pacheco on Indian Trail and she agreed to ride to the police station where she admitted to the crime.
