Trooper facing arson-related charges resignsFebruary 7, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Authorities announced Friday that an Indiana State Police trooper arrested earlier in the week on felony counts of arson and insurance fraud had resigned from the force.
Jeremy K. Galloway, 44, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the Oct. 13 arson fire at his 1206 Main St., Tell City, home.
The Tell City Volunteer Fire Department said there were actually two separate structure fires on the property involving both the home and an outbuilding. Prior to the fires being extinguished, Galloway’s house sustained heavy smoke and fire damage and the outbuilding, which contained two motorcycles, was totally destroyed.
Two dogs also died.
Indiana State Police in Jasper began a criminal investigation after the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office said the fire was caused by arson.
An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday charging Galloway with two Level 4 felony counts of arson, a Level 5 felony count of insurance fraud and a Level 6 felony count of arson with intent to defraud.
Galloway was taken into custody Tuesday by state police, who said at the time that he was on administrative leave without pay.
After his arrest, a misdemeanor count of cruelty to an animal was added to his charges.
State police said Galloway resigned from his position as a trooper Wednesday.
