Thomas MacMillan File Photo A federal judge sent Angelo Reyes back to the slammer Monday, following a complaint that the Fair Haven developer intimidated a fire marshal’s teenage son in the wake of an arson investigation.

U.S. District Judge Vanessa L. Bryant in Hartford on Monday issued an arrest warrant for Reyes, who is awaiting trial on charges that he torched four Fair Haven buildings to make way for development plans.

The prosecution asked the judge to lock Reyes up after he allegedly threatened a lead fire department investigator who’s a key witness against him in a federal arson case.

“Those accusations are false,” Reyes told the Independent last week.

Bryant heard evidence on the claim last week and found the allegations to be credible. She ordered Reyes jailed without bond.

Reyes was taken into custody by the FBI Monday afternoon without incident, according to U.S. Attorney spokesman Tom Carson.
