CURRY COUNTY, N.M. (KFDA) - A Curry County Grand Jury has indicted the man accused of setting fire to the Clovis Walmart.

The Ninth Judicial District Attorney’s Office announced today a Curry County Grand Jury indicted 59-year-old Jimmy Guillen on charges of arson, aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon, tampering with evidence and felon in possession with a firearm.

The charges stem from September 3 when a fire engulfed the Walmart in Clovis, causing $42 million worth of damage.

At a pretrial detention hearing, officials say the judge found him to be dangerous and a threat to the community. He will stay in jail until trial.

He faces 25 and a half years in prison if convicted on all counts.

He will be arraigned in the next two weeks.
