St. Mary's Co. Man Charged with Arson


HOLLYWOOD, Md. (August 31, 2011) – Deputy State Fire Marshals have charged, Marc David Wilson (34) with 1st Degree Arson in connection with intentionally setting multiple fires inside his mobile home.

Hollywood, Leonardtown and Bay District Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the one alarm fire at approximately 6:00 p.m. on August 28, 2011 and placed the fire under control within twenty-five minutes.

Investigators determined multiple fires were set inside the dwelling by Wilson after the home was damaged when a tree fell and caused roof damage to the structure during the hurricane. Wilson was arrested on a warrant and transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. A subsequent background check revealed Wilson was also wanted on unrelated charges in Colorado.

Wilson was charged with 1st Degree Arson and remains at the St. Mary’s County Detention Center awaiting review before a District Court Commissioner.
