Second arrest made in arson

A Hudson Falls woman was arrested for aiding a local man who allegedly set a car on fire last month.

Hillary E. DeLuca, 25, of Broad Street, was charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal facilitation and criminal solicitation.

Police said she drove Eric. H. Ripley, of Whitehall, to Fifth Street where he set a 2000 Subaru Legacy ablaze. Ripley is the ex-boyfriend of the car owner’s girlfriend.

Police allege DeLuca drive Ripley away following the incident.

Ripley was arrested and charged on June 25 with arson and reckless endangerment, both felonies. The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible, police said.

DeLuca was arraigned in Whitehall Village Court and released to appear at a later date.
