MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) – A Moultrie business owner is determined to stay on her feet after an arsonist set fire to two stores she owned over the weekend.

Patricia Bush and her husband run the UPS Store and Pat's Place.

Saturday morning a burglar broke into the stores and vandalized them before starting a fire.

The UPS Store sustained heavy smoke damage and some of the equipment was destroyed.

Pat's Place, a specialty store next door, is nearly a complete loss.

Bush wants her customers to know the UPS store is up and running a few doors down in the same shopping center.

"We are doing everything we can and we are definitely in business. We are shipping everyday. It's A setback emotionally, but we are here for the long haul," said owner Patricia Bush.

Moultrie Police arrested 21-year old Justin Howard just hours after the crime.

He's charged with first degree arson and two counts of burglary.

He was arrested in two previous burglaries at the same location.

Bush says no packages were damaged and shipping from the U-P-S store is going as scheduled.
