Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Police have arrested 56-year-old Robert Joseph Coombs, Jr. on Thursday for setting fire to a 1991 GMC Sierra 3500 pick-up truck in October.

The blaze reportedly caused an estimated $1,500 in damages. The incident occurred in the 28200 block of Stanford Road in Eden, MD. Investigators determined Coombs set fire to the interior and exterior of the truck as result of a financial dispute between himself and the vehicles owner.

Coombs is facing multiple charges, including Malicious Buring 1st Degree.  If convicted, he faces 2 months to 25 years in prison and/or $35,500 in fines.

Coombs is also facing unrelated burglary charges from the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.
