Raymond Pecher, Late Nite Pie Manager, Accused of Arson (Read the Criminal Complaint)

The manager of Montrose's Late Nite Pie has been charged with setting the February blaze that destroyed the semi-legendary restaurant.

Court documents say Raymond Pecher, 45, was seen leaving the building a little before 4 a.m. February 8, about ten minutes before smoke was first detected. A security cam across the street caught him leaving in a Chevrolet Astro van.

Two other men had been seen entering the building before that and leaving with a bench they loaded into an SUV.

Four different origin fires were discovered by arson investigators, and accelerant was also detected.

Pecher is charged with a felony count of arson.

Pecher denied any wrongdoing to investigators.
