A Rosemount woman has been charged for her alleged role in the arson of a health and nutrition store on May 28 in St. Paul, according to the Department of Justice U.S. Attorney’s Office.

U.S. Attorney Erica McDonald’s office charged McKenzey Ann Degidio Dunn, 19, on June 10 in U.S. District Court with conspiracy to commit arson.

During an investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives obtained video surveillance footage from inside the store on the night of the arson and asked the public for help in identifying the suspects.

Dunn can be seen allegedly standing near a shelving unit holding a bottle of flammable hand sanitizer, according to the Department of Justice. Another suspect could be seen pouring the sanitizer onto the shelves and lighting it on fire.

Her alleged co-conspirators Samuel Elliot Frey, 19 of Brooklyn Park, and Bailey Maire Baldus, 19, of Ramsey, have also been charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit arson.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the ATF, the FBI, the St. Paul Police Department, the St. Paul Fire Department and the Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division.
