Police arrest man accused of setting fire to CVS after Freddie Gray funeral

BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore police have arrested a man authorities say set fire to a CVS pharmacy during the height of the riots that rocked the city after the death of Freddie Gray

Police said at a news conference Wednesday evening that 24-year-old Raymon Carter was arrested in Federal Hill after Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents spotted him. He is charged with federal arson offenses.

Authorities say Carter set fire to the CVS at Pennsylvania and North avenues April 27 during the worst night of rioting in Baltimore. Police Commissioner Anthony Batts says Carter is responsible for causing $1 million in damage.

Mayor said it was okay to destroy! How can he be charged? I would subpoena her and the tape.

It will never stick. They all look the same. And worst rioting ever in Baltimore? This is the problem. We have forgotten history.

Maybe a little accountability!

Still need to get rid of the mayor for 'authorizing' it in the first place!

Then we need to get rid of the DA - for being a bim-jerk!
