QUINCY -- A Quincy woman arrested earlier this year on multiple arson charges was arrested again and charged Tuesday with aggravated arson and residential arson.

Lori Thompson, 55, was taken into custody at 1 p.m. on a $5 million bond. Thompson's latest arrest is in connection with a fire in the 2400 block of Curved Creek Road. Adams County Sheriff's Department deputies were called to a home in the block to investigate suspicious circumstances regarding a house on fire in the subdivision.

In April, Thompson entered a not guilty plea to one count of aggravated arson and five counts of residential arson. Those charges stem from Quincy Police Department investigations into fires that occurred Dec. 1, 2016, at 2317 Waters Court and Oct. 4, 2017, at 3206 Rutledge Place. Police said Thompson was a resident of each of the addresses when each fire occurred.

The investigation continues.
