MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman has been arrested by the US Marshals and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office regarding an arson at an apartment complex on September 14.
Shaniqua Yates has been arrested for allegedly starting a fire on the 6300 block of Arbor Creek Trail in Memphis.
The fire displaced several residents. It happened at the Edge at Lakeview apartments, formerly known as the Arbors of Hickory Ridge, in the 6500 block of Arbor Creek Trail.
“It is a blessing that no one was injured in this fire,” said U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller. “There are reports that more than 20 residents were displaced by this senseless act. We hope this swift arrest can help to alleviate the turmoil that has been inflicted on the victims.
No one was harmed in the fire, but the complex did suffer $300,000 worth of damage.
Yates has been charged with aggravated arson in this case. She does not have bond information available at this time. Yates is scheduled to appear in court on September 19.
