Bond set for alleged Jones County serial arsonist

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - An alleged serial arsonist had his initial appearance Wednesday before Judge Billie Graham.

Jessie Blackledge had his bond set for two counts of arson and one count of burglary.

Bond was set at $25,000 for each charge for a total of $75,000.

His bond was revoked because he was already out on bond for another arson charge.

He's still in the Jones County Jail and the matter is still being investigated.
