The Annapolis Fire Marshall has arrested a suspect in connection with a vehicle arson that took place in the 1000 block of Timber Creek Drive on Oct. 14.
Joseph LaScola, of Annapolis, was charged with first- and second-degree malicious burning and destruction of property, according to a fire department press release.
Firefighters responded to a report that a 1994 Mazda Miata was on fire around 8 p.m. on Sunday. The Fire and Explosive Services Unit determined that the vehicle—which was not in operation at the time—had been set on fire.
The fire marshall's team investigated and obtained a search warrant for LaScola's home, which lead to his arrest.
Battalion Chief John Menassa estimated the car's value between $2,500 and $3,000.
