    INTERLACHEN, Fla. (AP) - Putnam County Fire Marshal Joe Guidry
    said it didn't take him long to conclude that arson was to blame
    for a mobile home fire west of Interlachen.
    Guidry said Armando Angel Rivera, 28, was outside the trailer,
    owned by Rivera's mother.
    "He said, 'I set it on fire,"' Guidry told The Palatka Daily
    News. "He said he needed to go to jail, and I obliged him."
    Rivera was charged with felony arson and misdemeanor counts of
    breaking and entering and vandalism, said Guidry. He was booked
    into the county jail in Palatka on $5,508 bond and was still there
    Thursday, a jail spokesman said. The jail had no information on his
    legal representation.
    Rivera told investigators he had just been released from a
    rehabilitation center on Tuesday and came to the home, couldn't
    find his mother and broke into the trailer and spent the night. On
    Wednesday, he said, he set the fire.
    Guidry said the fire caused about $1,500 in damage and no
    injuries.
    Putnam County is in northeastern Florida.

    I'm so happy he had been "rehabilitated". Imagine what he might have done had he not been rehabbed.

    Mom must have run away knowing he was out.
