Arson trial set for December

The former employee charged after Pedro Gonzales Fruit Stand burned down last September will be going to trial in December.

Adam Michael Clifford Schultz, 39, is facing one count of theft over $5,000 and one count of arson in relation to the fire. His trial has been scheduled for three days beginning Dec. 8.

He is accused of committing the theft on September 7, 2013, the day before the fruit stand was completely destroyed by an intentionally set fire.

The fire destroyed a feed barn, half of the main sales building and all the product inside.

The Ruth family, owner of the long-running operation, have since rebuilt the facility and are open for business.
