Police Suspect Woman Of Oak Street Arson, Burglary


Payson Police have submitted complaints to the county attorney against a 42-year-old Payson woman for arson and burglary.

Lori Ann Taddei has not been arrested on the charges because she is already in jail on unrelated charges, said Payson Police Commander Don Engler.

The arson took place on Dec. 4 at 609 S. Oak St., the same residence police searched days earlier in a drug raid.

Engler said police initially believed there were other suspects involved in the arson, but the investigation showed otherwise.

Although Engler did not want to say what led to Taddei's arrest, he said, "She was an investigative lead early on."

Engler said the investigation into the arson is complete.
