2 men face federal arson charges in Frankford fire

PHILADELPHIA - February 21, 2014

The 4-alarmer destroyed the Arco Sales Company on Wakeling Street near Aramingo Avenue in December of 2012.

Authorities say 30-year-old James Pickup and 20-year- old Shawn Workman set the fire to cover a burglary at the business.

Officials say the pair stole alcohol and computer equipment.

They face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Arco manufactured and sold renewable and non-renewable aircraft, missile components and other naval items to federal government agencies throughout the United States.
