On 23 Dec 08 Deputy Sheriff Norman responded
to a vehicle fire at the intersection of County Nine Road and
Dana’s Run Road in Newport. Four days earlier the vehicle,
a Chevy S-10, was involved in another fire that caused damage
to the seat before being extinguished. In this instance the
truck was fully engulfed in flames and extinguished after sustaining
major damage. Acting on a tip, Deputy Norman identified a suspect
in the arson as Matthew Friend, age 39, 4770 County Nine Road,
Reno. Though he first denied being connected to the fire in
any way, Mr. Friend recanted his statement and admitted starting
the fire with a Bic lighter. Mr. Friend said he was tired of
the truck being there and thought if he burnt the truck it
would be hauled away. In consequence, Deputy Norman requested
a summons for Mr. Friend for arson.
