Woman held on solicitation of arson

On December 3, 2008, a 76-year-old female was charged with Solicitation of Aggravated Arson.  The individual in custody is Dorothy Suggs (W/F, DOB 6/29/32, of Locust Street, Clarksville, and has a bond of $1,000.

On four separate occasions, Dorothy Suggs, approached an individual and offered them money to commit arson on a Duplex residence, which she owns, at 305 Locust Street, Clarksville.  Suggs advised the individual to place a candle next to a couch to start the fire.  The individual asked ‘what if the occupants of residence were there’; Ms Suggs made a statement that she didn’t care.  Dorothy Suggs was taken into custody and booked into the Montgomery County Jail.

The investigator is Detective Gary Hodges.



    • I inquired with the Clarksville Police Department and this was the response.

      Ms Suggs was given what’s known as a pre-trial diversion. If there are no further incidents in one year the charge will be dismissed. But, she was initially charged and booked into jail. The victim of the case has since moved out of state. That and in consideration of the woman’s age, she was put on a one year period of observation and if no further crimes occur, her case is dismissed.
