Ex-MARTA Cop Indicted on Arson Charges

DECATUR, GA – A former MARTA Police officer was charged Tuesday for setting his car on fire and reporting it stolen.
A DeKalb County Grand Jury indicted Malasta Hill on charges of arson, false report of a crime and damaging property to defraud another.
“Police are expected to maintain a high level of integrity,” DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said. “Malasta Hill tried to cheat his insurance company, and did so in a very dangerous manner.”
In January 2015, then-MARTA Officer Hill called DeKalb County Police to report his 2010 Chevrolet Impala stolen from the Stonecrest Mall parking lot.
A day later, the car was found set on fire at 4878 River Road in Ellenwood.
In October, a DeKalb County arson investigator filed charges against Hill.
