Potential Arsonist Arrested Monday Night

Distraught man threatens family home.

 

A Saugus man is in custody for attempting to set his house on fire. 29-year old Jeff Stauffer doused his garage, car and lawn with gasoline shortly after 11 p.m. Monday while under the influence of alcohol, and threatened to burn down the home.

Sheriff’s deputies were able to remove his wife and two children from the Wellston Drive house safely and Stauffer was arrested without incident.

He was taken to the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s station and booked on suspicion of felony attempted arson. He is being held in lieu of $75,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
