HARRINGTON, Del.- A Harrington man has been arrested and charged with arson and other charges, according to the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office.

On Aug. 3, fire and police officials say Joshua Lewis, 28, intentionally lit a car on fire on Pinepitch Road.

Through the course of the investigation, it was determined that the car matched the description of a car used in a string of recent bank robberies. The robberies occurred in Camden on July 28 and in Greenwood on Aug. 2, officials said.

A joint investigation with the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office, the Department of Justice and the Greenwood and Camden police departments found that Lewis was the primary suspect.

On Aug. 6, he was taken into custody by the Dover Police Department for a third robbery that had occurred in Dover that day.

Lewis was charged with several felonies related to the robberies by the departments where the robberies had occurred. The State Fire Marshal's Office arrested Lewis for arson and other charges related to the arson.

He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court #7 in Dover and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $108,000 bond.
