3 Arrested in CA Fire Had Pot in Backpacks

"It wasn’t an arson. They are charged with a crime but part of it is criminal stupidity."

Three men arrested in accidentally setting the highly-dangerous Colby Fire plaguing Southern California were found with pot in their backpacks, according to local reports. They are being held on $500,000 bail, according to police Sergeant Michael Hammond at the Glendora Police Department. According to Police Chief Tim Staab, the three men did not set the fire purposefully: “It wasn’t an arson. They are charged with a crime but part of it is criminal stupidity.”

The three men, Clifford Eugene Henry, 22, of Glendora, Jonathan Carl Jarrell, 23, of Irwindale, and Steven Robert Aguirre, 21, a homeless man, fled the area of their campfire, but were found by police.

Cpl. Nancy Miranda arrested two of them, and called them disheveled and dirty. Their backpacks had marijuana in them. The third man was later arrested after being transported down Glendora Mountain Road by a US Forest Service employee.
