Union County authorities said they have charged a 24-year-old man with setting fire to four vehicles last month.
The fires were discovered on Sept. 16 in the Wesley Chapel and Marvin areas, according to the Union County Sheriffs Office. That morning, deputies were called to a home on Greengate Lane in the Stonegate subdivision. When they arrived, deputies found three vehicles on fire in the driveway.
Around the same time, another fire was reported on Sir Barton Lane in the Providence Downs neighborhood, about seven miles away. Thats where a pickup had also been set on fire, the Sheriffs Office said.
Detectives and investigators from the Union County Fire Marshals Office investigated the fires and identified Vincent Scott Rosenzweig as a suspect in the case.
Authorities said Rosenzweig used to live in the Stonegate subdivision and knew members of both victim families.
Last week, investigators interviewed Rosenzweig, who was already in the Union County jail for an unrelated felony offense. He confessed to setting the fires, according to the Sheriffs Office, and he was charged with four counts of burning personal property, a felony.
Authorities didnt reveal a possible motive in the incident.
Rosenzweig was being held without bond in Union County jail Wednesday.
