Londonderry man charged with three counts of arson

A dispute between neighbors at an apartment complex in Londonderry, New Hampshire, has led to the arrest of 43-year-old John Ramsey, who appears to have taken matters into his own hands when law enforcement officials didn't arrest a man who allegedly touched the suspect's girlfriend and her two daughters.

According to regional news source the Union Leader, Ramsey told the police, "If you don't do something about him, I'm going to do something that will get me arrested." He then allegedly lit a 150-foot fireworks fuse in the gas tank of a Ford Escape owned by the sister of the man he was fighting with, which resulted in the destruction of three vehicles.

Police Sergeant Kim Bernard said that, when questioned about his role in the in the incident, Ramsey denied any involvement, claiming that he had gone to bed that night just before 3 a.m. However, a neighbor told law enforcement officials that he had sold Ramsey the fuse.

The suspect was ultimately arrested after police obtained recorded phone calls from his ex-girlfriend in which he admitted to setting the fire.

"Ramsey had confessed to her about the car fires and threatened to kill her," Bernard stated, adding that the suspect also said "if she told anyone, he would cut her up into small pieces."

The 43-year-old currently faces charges of criminal threatening and violating a protective order, as well as three counts of arson.
