One female student visa holder from China is facing federal charges for setting fire to a historic church in Alabama.
According to the federal court filings, 27-year-old Xiaoquin Yan of China repeatedly scoped out the First Baptist Church Montgomery and referred to the pastors as “rich white men.” The church was founded in 1829 and is the church where Alabama Governor Kay Ivey attends services.
Yan was charged with second-degree arson after she set four fires in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church Montgomery. She caused about $25K in damage.
The pastor of the historic church said he had interacted with Yan and had suspicions about her. He was so suspicious that he wrote down her license plate number. A security guard and a custodian noticed that Yan came to the church with long hair and then with short hair. She suspiciously asked about the security cameras in the building.
