Augusta Man Pleads Guilty to Setting Car on Fire
Ryan Tondreau pleaded guilty on Wednesday to charges that he set his friend's car on fire in Hallowell back in March.
Ryan R. Tondreau, 39, won’t be sentenced until after an evaluation of his mental health can be completed.
Tondreau, according to Kennebec County Deputy District Attorney Frayla Tarpinian, went to his friend’s Hallowell residence around 1 a.m. on March 2, and the friend, who said Tondreau seemed to be under the influence of alcohol, let him in. The two argued and the friend asked Tondreau to leave, and then physically removed him from the residence. Tondreau told the man he would contact the man’s girlfriend and set his car on fire.
