PORT ANGELES — A Sedro-Woolley man has been arrested in connection with a New Year’s Day fire that significantly damaged a Beaver-area residence at 201821 State Route 101.
Marshall Jay Lewis, 36, was arrested Friday morning at his home in Sedro-Woolley by Clallam County Sheriff’s Office detectives assisted by the Sedro-Woolley Police Department.
Sheriff’s detectives said they developed probable cause for Lewis’ arrest after serving search warrants for cell phone data and other evidence which led them to him.
Lewis is being transported by sheriff’s detectives back to Clallam County where he will be booked into the Clallam County Jail.
He is currently registered as a level one sex offender in Skagit County.
Lewis’ registration requirement comes from a 2010 Rape in the Third Degree conviction in Snohomish County Superior Court.
The case is being forwarded to the Clallam County Prosecutor’s Office for a formal charging decision.
