Third charge added in Ohio mosque arson

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A third crime has been added to the charges against an Indiana man accused of burning a Toledo mosque in September.

Randy Linn of St. Joe, Ind., was charged in October with one count each of intentionally defacing, damaging, and destroying religious property and using a fire to commit a felony.

The (Toledo) Blade reports that a federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted the 52-year-old Linn on an additional charge of using and carrying a firearm to commit a crime of violence.

Linn is accused of breaking into the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo on Sept. 30 and using gasoline to start a fire in the second-floor prayer room.

Authorities said Linn had three firearms in his parked vehicle at the time.
