Man faces arson charge

A Duette man has been charged with arson after investigators say he set a truck on fire Monday.

The State Fire Marshal's Office investigated a truck fire near State Road 64 and Rye Road around 7:30 p.m. Several witnesses placed Lloyd D. Worth, 32, near the truck at that time.

A trained dog reportedly smelled an accelerant on Worth's legs. He was charged with arson and possession of marijuana and was being held on $1,240 bail Tuesday at the Manatee County jail.
