Arson Charges Bound to Court

Arson, burglary and other charges against a Bradford man accused of starting at least four fires in Bradford have been bound to court.

21-year-old Harvey Rose told police he started fires at 8 Thompson Avenue and 10 Congress Place, according to court papers. He is also accused of setting a fire at 125 West Washington Street because he was upset with a resident he says owes him money. He is also charged in connection to a fire at 338 East Main Street.

Surveillance video from nearby businesses captured Rose near the scenes at the times of the last two fires. Charges against his co-defendant in the case of the East Main Street fire have also been bound to court.

26-year-old Jeremiah Smith of Bradford and Rose each told police the other started the fire. Smith remains jailed on $250,000 bail.

Rose remains jailed on more than half a million dollars bail for these cases as well as theft and drug charges, and charges related to the burning of his 2-week-old baby.
