Licking County’s arson team has been getting statewide recognition for their investigation into the recent arson-for-hire scheme in Licking and Franklin counties.

The Ohio Chapter of the International Association of Arson Investigators honored the local group during a recent ceremony in Columbus. The local arson team is headed by Dick “Shakey” Harris.

Twelve people were charged in connection with the arson scheme, which authorities say was masterminded by Phillip Godbolt, and ten have pleaded guilty. Realtor Kevin Shawn Redman was acquitted last month, and his business partner, Suzanne Spurgeon, goes to trial in September.
