Smoot Man Arrested After Setting Fire To Camper

A Smoot man is behind bars after setting fire to a camper that also served as a home to two people.

Karl Allen Legg, 49, was arrested on May 27 at approximately 11 p.m. after a West Virginia State Trooper was dispatched to Rogers Lane regarding a disturbance, according to the criminal complaint filed in Greenbrier County Magistrate Court.

Upon arrival, the officer noticed that a camper was on fire. The residents of the camper told the officer that Legg became angry with them when they wouldn’t take him to get meth, so he started striking one of them with an ax handle, the complaint alleges.

The victim, who had been struck with the ax handle, was able to get it away from Legg. The victim then struck Legg in the face with the handle.

Following this altercation, the victim told the officer that Legg “put a tire under the camper and set it on fire, which then set [the] camper on fire.”

Legg allegedly told the officer that he “wanted to kill [the victim] because [the victim] would not move off his property.”

Legg is currently at Southern Regional Jail on a $10,000 cash/surety bond for one felony count of arson.
