An investigation into a suspected arson in Amboy continues as two suspects in a fire earlier this October were released on charges as more information is needed.
Valerie and Adam Gardner, 65 and 23, were initially charged with first-degree arson following an Oct. 12 fire at their residence off of Northeast Cedar Creek Road in Amboy. Court documents from Oct. 16 show that “further investigation is necessary” into the incident and both had bail exonerated.
The Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office confirmed Oct. 21 that an investigation into the fire that led to the initial arrest of both Gardners was ongoing.
According to probable cause affidavits for both Gardners’ arrest a responding officer was dispatched to the 22300 block of Northeast Cedar Creek Road, recognizing that a previous fire was investigated at the same residence Aug. 1.
