Accused Temple Arsonist, Meth Suspect Held in Bell County Jail
This is just methed up.
A 55-year-old woman accused of setting her (I hope ex) boyfriend's house ablaze back in December and stealing his security system was behind bars Thursday.
Online records indicate Tammy Delynn was booked into the Bell County Jail Tuesday afternoon and charged with arson intending damage to a habitat. She remained in the jail Thursday in lieu of $100,000 bond.
Christopher Shadrock with our partners at News 10 reports that Delynn is accused of setting fire to the bathroom and attic of a home in the 3000 block of East Adams Avenue in Temple on December 1, 2018. Investigators say she left windows and a door open with the intention of helping the fire spread with the help of ventilation.
According to police, Security equipment stolen from the home on October 10, 2018, was found during a December 7 search of Delynn's apartment, and that she was the last person filmed by the cameras before they were taken.
Delynn reportedly admitted to adding spyware to the man's phone as well, saying she "knew he was speaking to investigators".
But wait, there's more.
During that December 7 search, investigators reportedly found methamphetamine and a pipe. She was taken into custody, and jailers said they found meth on her as she was searched during the booking process. She was free on bond at the time of her arrest Tuesday.
Suspects are granted the presumption of innocence until convicted in a court of law, but if these accusations are true, I sincerely hope Delynn gets the help she needs.
