Arson charges laid 19 months after $7mil Tallebudgera school inferno

A 20-year-old man has been charged over a multi-million dollar arson attack on a school at Tallebudgera more than a year-and-a-half ago.

The inferno was started around 10 o’clock on the night of April 25 last year at the Tallebudgera Creek Road School.

It caused $7 million damage, gutting classrooms and facilities.


Detectives have also charged the young man from Mermaid Beach with an arson attack on a Tallebudgera Valley playground 5 days before the school was reduced to a smoking ruin.

He’ll appear in Southport Court on December 11.
