Update: Man Damaged Cameras Before Torching Ex-Girlfriend's Home, Police Say

The homeowner had gotten an order of protection against the man, who is her ex-boyfriend.

A Black Jack man faces several criminal charges after police setting fire to his ex-girlfriend’s home in unincorporated North County.

Harvey Jones, 30, of Nordell Court in Black Jack, was charged Tuesday with first-degree arson, violating a protection order, and second-degree property damage.

St. Louis County Police said Jones pulled four closed-circuit video cameras down from exterior walls on the woman’s home in the 2100 block of Thunderbird Avenue.

Police said the cameras did capture Jones on the property, and then several cameras are damaged and stop working.  Video shows Jones leaving the property as smoke begins to appear, police said.

The woman previously obtained an order of protection against Jones, which bars him from being at her home.

The fire damaged the home’s exterior. The homeowner was in the house when the fire started, police said.

Bond was set at $75,000.
