FOSTORIA, Ohio — A Fostoria man was indicted Thursday on a fourth-degree felony charge of arson.
41-year-old Harold L. Black is accused of setting fire to a vehicle outside the residence of his estranged girlfriend’s home, located at 818 E. Fremont St. in Fostoria.
Black’s estranged girlfriend and her son were not home at the time of the crime, according to a release from Fostoria Police.
Court documents state Black decided to set the vehicle on fire due to being upset over a “failed relationship” with the mother of his son.
Black went into his garage and took gas out of his string trimmer, put it into a Mountain Dew bottle and used that to set the vehicle on fire, according to court records.
