HOPKINS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A deputy with the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 38-year-old man Saturday after he allegedly confessed to an HCSO investigator that he had set the fire that occurred at his family’s home on County Road 2473 because he didn’t receive his medications or disability checks.

Cody Booker Colley is still being held in the Hopkins County Jail on a first-degree felony arson of a habitation charge. His bond amount has been set at $75,000.

According to the probable cause affidavit, an HCSO deputy spoke with an HCSO investigator at the sheriff’s office on Saturday. The investigator told her that he had just interviewed Colley about the fire that occurred at his family’s home at 482 CR 2472.

The investigator told the deputy that Colley admitted to setting the house on fire because he didn’t receive his medications or disability checks, the affidavit stated. Colley was then booked into the Hopkins County Jail without incident.

Later, Colley allegedly made threats toward the jail staff, according to the affidavit.
