Two Cana men have been charged with attempted arson after a July 30 fire at a residence in Cana.
According to Carroll County Sheriff J.B. Gardner, deputies from his department responded to a possible arson of a residence located on Holland Drive in Cana at approximately 12:33 a.m. on July 30.
“Corporals Rocky Dalton and Jake Worrell arrived on scene and spoke with the victim, who advised she was in her bedroom with her two children when she noticed flames outside the window,” Gardner said. “Items left at the scene indicated the home had been intentionally set on fire.”
Gardner said Worrell and Dalton, along with Investigator Bryan Felts, located Joseph P. Brown III, 29, at a residence on Brushy Fork Road in Cana. After Dalton and Worrell completed their investigation, they charged Brown with
attempted arson of an occupied dwelling house. Gardner said Brown was transported back to the Sheriff’s Office and taken before a magistrate. Brown is being held in the New River Valley Regional Jail without bond.
Gardner said Dalton and Worrell also arrested Travis James Carroll, 19, of Brushy Fork Road in Cana and charged him with attempted arson of an occupied dwelling. Carroll was also transported to the Sheriff’s Office and taken before the magistrate. Carroll is being held without bond in the New River Valley Regional Jail.
