Heroin Addicted Arsonist Indicted for Torching a Car


SAN ANGELO— A San Angelo man caught with heroin and stolen property has been indicted for starting a vehicle fire last October.

A Tom Green County Grand Jury indicted Raymond Blake Keele, 23, of San Angelo, for Arson.

According to court records, on October 21, 2023, Keele started a fire in a vehicle by igniting a paper license plate tag and had the intention of destroying or damaging the vehicle.

Then, on February 7, 2024, at the 2000 block of Junius Street, a San Angelo Police Officer stopped Keele for county warrants.

A search of Keele’s person revealed that he had 3.15 grams of heroin and was in possession of stolen property that belonged to Family Dollar. The heroin was field tested, and the result came back positive.
