The man arrested in connection with an arson fire in New Ulm has been identified.
Fire Chief Paul Macho says 30-year-old Cotey Bandow of New Ulm was seen on surveillance video at the B & J Laundromat, which burned in the early morning hours of August 30th.
Macho says evidence was also seized in a search of his apartment and vehicle. Bandow is in the Brown County jail with a $150,000 unconditional or $75,000 conditional bond set.
Senior investigator Jeff Hohensee with the New Ulm PD said previously that the search of the home of the arson suspect led police to another address in Lewisville, where two of three guns stolen from R & R Bait and Tackle and a concertina that had been taken from Southside Auto Salvage were located, but a .45 caliber taken in the forcible break-in at the bait store remains missing.
