 On the evening of 12-7-2021, a deputy from
 the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Office was
 dispatched to the 24000 block of State Hwy 25
 in Cape Girardeau County Missouri for a report
 of a structure fire.
 While traveling to the location of the call dispatch
 advised our deputy that there was potentially
 an adult female and small child still inside the
 residence. Upon arrival to the call, our deputy
 could see no evidence of an active fire.
 However, through an investigation, it was
 determined a male individual had attempted to
 burn down the residence by starting a fire inside
 the residence while others were asleep inside.
 An arrest was made, and the case was sent up
 to be reviewed by the Prosecutor's Office.
 Subsequently, a warrant was issued for 38yr
 old Male, Nicholas T. Lambrou from
 Cape Girardeau County Mo, who is charged
 with the following.
 Count:1 - Class B felony of arson in the first degree.
 Lambrou is currently housed at the Cape Girardeau
 County Justice Facility with a 25,000 cash-only bond.
 The Charge of an offense is merely an
 accusation, and the defendant is presumed
 innocent until and unless proven guilty.
