A former member of Iglesia Pentecostal de Bethlehem church in Bethlehem Pennsylvania is accused of setting two fires to his former church this past week.
According to Philly.com
“Bethlehem police say 43-year-old Wilmer Ortiz Torres was arraigned Friday night on arson, criminal trespass and burglary charges. He had been arrested earlier in the day after authorities reviewed surveillance video from a public housing complex across the street from the church.”
The first fire at the church occurred Tuesday (April 23, 2019) which gutted the sanctuary and
caused smoke and water damage. A second fire was set Thursday (April 25, 2019) on the church roof but was quickly extinguished.
