February 24, 2003

Sylvester- A suspected arsonist is caught trying to burn his second home in one day.

Sarah Ferrell's mobile home in Worth-Mor Estates caught fire early Sunday morning, and was nearly destroyed.

Fire officials say 25-year old Anthony White set the house on fire to get back at an ex-girlfriend.

"Residents had moved the day before, and we found them at another," said Sylvester Fire Chief Tommy Marchman. "The location the fire had two or three points of origin."

Investigators caught White at the Ferrell's new home Sunday afternoon cutting off the power. He got out of jail for stalking earlier this month.
