The Eastern North Carolina town of Pikeville only has 670 people in it, so that narrowed the list of suspects for burning down the town hall in November. But the person recently arrested for the arson is among the last townsfolk would have suspected: Kelvin Robinson, a 38-year-old who’s been a town public works employee since 2014. The NC State Bureau of Investigation made the arrest, media outlets report, and agents have accused Robinson not only of burning the building, but of taking $900 before setting the fire, reported TV station WITN. Pikeville is about 3 1/2 hours east of Charlotte, in Wayne County.
