CAROLINE COUNTY, Md.— A Greensboro man was arrested Tuesday for arson and related charges following three fires that he is accused of having set in May.
The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said 18-year-old Marcus M. Dorsey was involved with setting fire to a pole barn at 101 Church Street, a fence located at 206 W. Sunset Avenue, and a 1994 Ford Mustang at the rear of 121 N. Main Street in Greensboro on May 20. Authorities estimated damage to the involved properties to be about $27,000.
Investigators said when Dorsey heard of the arrest warrant issued against him regarding the fires, he fled the area in an effort to elude capture. After a six-week investigation, authorities found the suspect on July 24 at his place of employment in a Pasadena pizza restaurant and took him into custody.
Dorsey was charged with two counts of second-degree arson, three counts of first-degree malicious burning, and three counts of malicious destruction of property.
If convicted, Dorsey faces penalties of up to 59 years imprisonment or $77,500 in fines or both. Dorsey is being held on $25,000 bond at the Caroline County Detention Center.
