Foley Police arrested two people in connection to a camper fire at 301 W. 4th Ave. and a car chase in the early morning hours Monday.
Monday at approximately 3:30 a.m. the Foley officers responded to a call about a fully involved structure fire. Once on the scene, officers saw the structure on fire was a camper parked behind a residence. The Foley Fire Department also responded to the scene to extinguish the fire.
During the investigation, it was determined that Keairra Presley, 21, had intentionally set the camper fire. Presley and Felix Pickens, 30, had been in a dating relationship and had recently separated.
According to police, Presley came to Pickens’ residence to discuss their past dating relationship and personal belongings. Pickens then exited the camper and got into his car. Presley then got into her car and Pickens chased Presley, who returned to the camper, where she set it on fire.
Aaliya Knight, who officers say is currently in a relationship with Pickens, was in the camper, but was able to exit the camper without injury.
Presley then left the residence again and was followed by Pickens, who ran her off the road and into a brick sign at the entrance to River Trace subdivision. Her vehicle was disabled.
After further investigation, Foley Police were able to make contact with both subjects. No one was injured, but both were arrested.
Presley was arrested and charged with first-degree arson, while Pickens was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment. According to police, both subjects also have previous domestic violence charges pending from previous cases.
