FREDERICK, Maryland — Police in Frederick have arrested a man they say set fire to a car.

Police say they arrested 58-year-old Jeffery Lynn Jones in connection with the fire, which did minor damage to the vehicle. Police say Jones knew the owner of the vehicle and that the incident was not a random event.

Jones did not appear to have a listed telephone number.
