A 14-year old is headed to Family Court and a mother and son are facing charges for hiring the teen to burn down a house, according to Schenectady Police.
Sardawatie Beedasee, 42, and Ramgadoo Romal, 21, are each charged with one count of Arson (3rd Degree, Class C felony). Police say she told her son to hire someone to burn down a vacant property she owned on Linden Street.
The Schenectady Arson Task Force made these arrests in connection with the May 15 fire at 66 / 68 Linden St. and said they wanted to collect the insurance money.
The identity of the 14-year old has not been released.
