Sheriff’s Office Make Arrest for Gaylesville Arson

According to Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver, Sheriff’s Office investigators have charged 44 year-old Gregory M. Reed of Centre with second degree arson in connection with a mobile home fire in Gaylesville. The fire occurred Monday, January 29, 2018, at a residence on Alabama Highway 68. Gaylesville, Broomtown, and Cedar Bluff Fire Departments responded to the scene and quickly extinguished the fire. Firemen requested the Sheriff’s Office investigate the blaze, and Deputy Key and Investigators Snead and Green responded to the scene.

The fire was determined to be intentionally set. Investigators developed a suspect and arrested Reed the following day for unlawful possession of a controlled substance. Further investigation led to the suspect being charged for the arson on Thursday.

Reed remains in the Cherokee County Detention Center on charges of second degree arson, 3 counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, and a bond revocation warrant.
