Teenager Arrested for Arson

HAMPSTEAD -- Authorities in Pender County have found the young man they say is responsible for a fire behind Topsail Middle School.

Officials with the sheriff's department say they've arrested 17-year-old John Matthew Henry.

He's accused of starting a fire that burned about an acre of land in Hampstead on April 28.

Authorities identified Henry as a suspect last week. They spotted him Friday in traffic in Hampstead.
