LITTLE FALLS – New York State Police have arrested Brian D. Talbot, 36, of Little Falls, for allegedly dousing a home in gasoline and trying to set it on fire.

Talbot has been charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree grand larceny and second-degree criminal contempt. The burglary charge is a B felony.

The charges were made after Talbot allegedly broke into an unoccupied home at 148 Tisi Road, Town of Danube, pouring gasoline all over the house and using the furnace to start a fire and burn it down.

A female acquaintance, who has an active order of protection against him, says Talbot came to her home uninvited after the incident, told her he had set the house on fire and then stole her four-wheeler to flee from police.

Talbot was located shortly after leaving the woman’s house and was taken into custody without incident. He was arraigned in the town of German Flats Court and remanded on $50,000 dollars cash bail or $100,000 bond.
