A man authorities arrested last week for alleged arson in Arlington remains in the Neshoba County Jail after being denied bond.

Tyler Bounds, 24, of 10091 County Road 2810, was denied bond on charges of arson and burglary after allegedly burning down a trailer and housing stolen goods in connection with an ongoing burglary case.

Neshoba County Sheriff Eric Clark said that an alleged accomplice in the burglary, Charles Hardy, 39, of 13440 Hwy. 19 North, bonded out of jail last week.

Clark said a fire that raged on Saturday, May 9 in the Arlington community was set intentionally by Bounds, possibly to destroy evidence in the ongoing burglary case.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Bounds and charged him with the arson and burglary. 

Clark said last week that Bounds set fire to his own trailer.  

The Arlington Fire Department, along with other local volunteer departments, responded to the fire at approximately 6 p.m. that evening. After establishing that Bounds lived in a trailer that was burned, investigators found what they believe to be some of the stolen items listed in a Road 393 burglary case.

Bounds was brought in for questioning, which led deputies to file arson and burglary charges against him. They also charged another man identified as Hardy believed to have assisted Bounds with burglary of an unoccupied home.

The case is still under investigation by the Neshoba County Sheriff’s Office and the State Fire Marshall.
