PRESTON - Christopher Dean Ward, 27, of Spring Valley, is being held in the Fillmore County Jail on $20,000 conditional bail after being charged in Fillmore County District Court on multiple charges related to an incident in Spring Valley on December 30, 2007.

According to court records, it is alleged that Ward entered an apartment complex in the city where an ex-girlfriend lived and tried to break into her apartment. It is further alleged that Ward shut off the power to the woman's apartment and cut the phone line. The woman locked herself in the bathroom and called 911 on a cell phone.

The criminal complaint also alleges that when police arrived, Ward hid in an empty apartment in the building. He then called police to report three false 911 calls in an attempt to divert law enforcement.

When law enforcement broke into the empty apartment, they discovered a fire had been set. Ward was discovered hiding in the apartment and was arrested.

Ward faces two felony counts of burglary and one felony count of arson. In addition, he is charged with several misdemeanor counts, including interference with a 911 call, falsely reporting a crime, criminal damage to property and negligence in causing a fire.

Judge Robert Benson scheduled Ward's next court appearance for January 14, 2008.
