Woman Arrested In Lewis Co. Arson

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a woman for allegedly setting fire to a Lewis County home earlier this year.

TBI agents began investigating the incident after receiving information from the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office. It happened a day earlier at a home located at 300 Thomas Avenue in Hohenwald.

During the course of the investigation, authorities determined the fire to be a case of arson and learned that Amanda Brooke Tripp was the individual responsible for the crime. Tripp lived at the home with her father and step-mother.

On November 6, the Lewis County Grand Jury returned an indictment, charging Tripp with one count of Aggravated Arson.

Authorities subsequently arrested her and booked her into the Lewis County Jail on $40,000 bond.
