RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A Cary man was arrested Sunday and charged with burning a cross, court documents show. 

William Josephus Warden, 20, faces a charge of ethnic intimidation as well as a charge of placing a burning cross without permission. 

North Carolina law forbids placing a burning cross on a piece of property “without first obtaining written permission of the owner or occupier of the premises so to do.”

He’s being held under a $20,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Monday. 

If Warden posts bond, he isn’t allowed to go within 100 yards of the Congregation Shaarei Shalom in Cary. 

He would also not be allowed to have contact with a person specifically named in his arrest warrant.
