Mother, son charged with arson in Schenectady

SCHENECTADY -- Police have arrested three people, including a mother and son, for their roles in setting fire to a vacant home in May.

Sardawatie Beedasee, 42, and Romal Ramgadoo, 21, were both charged with arson, along with a 14-year-old who is not being identified due to his age. Authorities say Beedasee, who owns the home that was set on fire, instructed her son to hire someone to set the fire in order to collect insurance money.

Ramgadoo allegedly hired the 14-year-old boy to set fire to the vacant property at 66/68 Linen Street..
