Cierra Queen Johnson was charged with arson and burglary Wednesday after an early-morning apartment fire in St. Anthony on Friday, July 5. A witness says Johnson threatened a woman because of her relationship with Johnson’s ex-partner, the criminal complaint states. Johnson said she had reason to believe nobody was in the Equinox Apartments and wanted to set it on fire “just a little bit,” police say. The apartments are located at 2804 Silver Lane. Police spoke to the woman allegedly threatened, who said her partner has a child with Johnson. Since July 3, Johnson allegedly threatened the woman repeatedly with phone calls, Facebook messages and video calls. Johnson, a 31-year-old from Maple Grove, threatened to burn the apartment complex down if the two didn’t stop seeing each other, the complaint says.
