Hammond man charged with arson

Press Release from the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal (Via Facebook)

TANGIPAHOA PARISH (June 22, 2020)- The State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFM) has arrested a Hammond man for setting fire to his mother’s manufactured home.

Julius Cooper, 29, was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on one count of Simple Arson.

In the early evening hours of Saturday, June 20, the Natalbany Fire Department responded to a call for a residential fire in the 10000 block of K Anderson Drive off of Johnny’s Lane. The mobile home was unoccupied at the time of the fire.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office also responded to the call and detained an individual on scene that admitted to setting the fire. That individual was later identified as Cooper, a resident of the trailer.

In an interview with investigators, Cooper admitted to setting the manufactured home on fire out of anger with his mother. He was then placed under arrest in connection with the case.
