Mount Joy juvenile charged with arson in attempted firebombing

Susquehanna Regional Police say a third juvenile from Mount Joy has been taken into custody in the attempted firebombing of an East Donegal Township home. It happened on January 10, just before 11 pm at a home along Sarah Lane.  A bottle filled with a flammable liquid was ignited and thrown at the home. The bottle landed in the yard and caused no damage.

Investigators believe the 17 year old had an issue with one of the residents of the household. Two other juveniles were arrested last week for their involvement.

Charges against the youth include Arson, Possession of Incendiary Device, Causing or Risking a Catastrophe and Criminal Conspiracy. The juvenile was committed to the Lancaster County Youth Intervention Center.
