THE SPOKESMAN REVIEW, SPOKANE, WA - A Spokane Valley resident apparently angry at having to wear face masks is accused of setting fires at two businesses in town over the coverings, including one ignited by a Molotov cocktail. Nicholas Afflerbaugh, 33, was arrested Sept. 3 at his apartment on suspicion of second-degree arson, second-degree malicious placement of explosives and third-degree malicious mischief in connection with an Aug. 30 fire at cannabis dispensary Locals Canna House. It appears those charges have been amended to second-degree arson and possessing/manufacturing an incendiary, according to Spokane County Superior Court’s website. “We certainly hope that this young man gets the help he needs before somebody is really hurt,” said Teresa Akers, owner of Believe Bride, the other Spokane Valley business where Afflerbaugh is accused of setting a fire. Afflerbaugh appeared in court Tuesday and Thursday, and is set for an arraignment Tuesday. For more on this story visit the Spokesman Review.
