ACCOMAC, Va. (AP) — Court records show that police investigating more than 70 arsons on Virginia's Eastern Shore observed someone torch a residence before they arrested a suspect in the case.
The Associated Press obtained court records related to the arrest of a 40-year-old suspect early Tuesday.
Tonya S. Bundick was arrested after a traffic stop near a vacant residence that had been set on fire in the town of Melfa.
The court records also reveal that a passenger was in the car with Bundick. The passenger was not identified.
Police have not announced any other arrests.
Bundick lives in Parksley, a small community where the first of 77 deliberately set fires was lit. It is not clear whether Bundick has an attorney. She has a Wednesday court appearance.
