A Bellingham man was reportedly caught on surveillance video intentionally setting two downtown fires Friday morning and also reaching into a bank ATM to damage it. Bellingham Police booked Mallik Jordan Goins, 20, into Whatcom County Jail Friday, Oct. 30, on suspicion of two counts of second-degree arson and one count of second-degree malicious mischief, and jail records show he is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail. Officers were sent at 9:30 a.m. Friday to the Heritage Bank in the 200 block of York Street after the bank reported somebody had set fire to its ATM, Lt. Claudia Murphy told The Bellingham Herald in an email. Offers reportedly found the ATM damaged with a cover to the camera broken off, wires pulled out and paper receipt rolls that had been set on fire.
