A man who allegedly set fire to a Biden-Harris sign made from hay bales by a farmer in Dalton was ordered held following a dangerousness hearing Friday, the office of Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington said.
Lonnie Durfee, 49 of Dalton, was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of burning personal property. He allegedly set fire to the 15 ft. display created by Dicken Crane at the Holiday Brook Farm on Oct. 9.
A not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf. Durfee was ordered held pending Friday’s hearing. Prosecutors cited Durfee’s “violent history” and said he was a danger to the public according to the statement.
