After allegedly setting fire to a church in downtown Billings and starting a fire at a nearby dormitory building where 19 people were staying, former Park and Big Horn counties resident Jodi Moore was arrested Tuesday morning.
According to the Billings Police Department’s Twitter feed she is currently being held in the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on two felony counts of arson and one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief. No injuries have been reported as a result of the fires.
Moore holds several convictions stemming from a Powell arrest including possession of a controlled substance, criminal entry, possession of controlled substance in powder or crystal form and breach of peace. Moore was also convicted of criminal entry in Lovell in 2014.
The names of the buildings have not yet been released, although the church is confirmed to be within the 100 block of 33rd Street and the dormitory building in question was on the 100 block of 31st Street. This matches the approximate location of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and The Alpha House PreRelease Center. Q2 News took a photo that showed fire damage to the front door of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
As of press time the Yellowstone County Detention Facility has confirmed the charges. No bond is posted for Moore at this time.
