Four months after six vehicles at a Richmond car lot were destroyed by fire, police have made an arrest in the case.
19-year-old Justin Ryan Hyatt stands charged with 1st Degree Criminal Mischief.
Police say Hyatt drilled holes in several vehicles at Valentine Honda on the bypass in Richmond, trying to steal gas. The drilling sparked a fire and six new Honda Pilot SUVs burned up.
The damage was estimated at more than 230 thousand dollars.
Hyatt was arrested on Tuesday and is being held in the Madison County Detention Center. If convicted, he could face up to five years behind bars.
