    Aharon Ron, of Glastonbury, has been charged with arson.

    A 22-year-old Glastonbury man accused of setting the fire that destroyed a home in November was charged with arson and additional charges on Tuesday.

    Police said Aharon Ron claimed he was intoxicated and angry when he set fire to a Stanley Drive house in Glastonbury where four people were sleeping around 3 a.m. on Nov. 25.

    The occupants were able to get out of the house without suffering injuries.

    However, the fire destroyed the garage, along with some exterior walls and the roof, police said. The house was declared a total loss.

    Police said Ron also gave investigators false and misleading information. He was charged with arson in the first degree, burglary in the first degree, criminal mischief in the first degree, two counts of false statement in the second degree and tampering with physical evidence.

    Glastonbury police took him into custody with help from the East Central Narcotics Task Force. 

    He is being held because he was not able to post the court-set $800,000 bond and will be arraigned at Manchester Superior Court on Jan. 9.
