NASHUA – After a person was let go Wednesday from his job at a northwest Nashua specialty furniture manufacturer and retailer, police say a man allegedly walked into the firm’s warehouse, set a box on fire, then went out and did some damage to his former boss’s car.

Ryan Hawes, 19, of 119 Conant Road, was subsequently charged with one count each of arson, a Class B felony, and criminal mischief, a Class A misdemeanor, police said.

Hawes was held on $5,000 cash or surety bail pending arraignment, which was scheduled for Thursday in Nashua district court.

A manager at Yogibo Bean Bags, 16 Celina Ave., called police around 9 a.m. Wednesday reporting that one of its employees allegedly set the fire and damaged the manager’s vehicle after his employment was terminated.

Hawes was at the company when police arrived, and after speaking with him, officers took him into custody, police said.

Police ask anyone with any more information about the incident should call the department’s Crime Line at 589-1665.
