Police arrest alleged firebugs

Police say a 32-year-old man
will face court after allegedly deliberately lighting fires at the base
of Anzac Hill overnight.

The man was arrested after a member of the public alerted police to
his actions just after 6pm on Wednesday. He allegedly lit several fires
near Schwarz Crescent and the Alice Springs Youth Hub which
required two fire units to extinguish.

The man was arrested a short time later and he has been charged with
setting fire to land or property and causing a bushfire. The latter
charge attracts a maximum penalty of 15 years jail under the Criminal
Code.
