Baltimore County Police are investigating a series of overnight vehicle fires in the Bowleys Quarters area as arson.

Police and Fire Department units responded to four different calls for vehicle fires between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., involving damage to six vehicles. Two incidents occurred in the 400 block of Carrollwood Road, causing damage to a Cadillac at one location and a Chrysler at another. In the 300 block of Carroll Island Road units were dispatched to a boat fire but discovered that a Jeep parked behind the boat was actually set on fire. In the 3700 block of White Pine Road an Infiniti and a Suzuki motor bike were set on fire, causing additional fire damage to a Chrysler parked nearby.

Detectives believe that these incidents may be related due to the time frame and area of the fires, but have not yet determined if one or more suspects are responsible for the fires.

The Baltimore County FID unit is continuing the investigation into these fires. Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 410-307-2020.

The driver of an Artscape Land Maintenance, Inc street sweeping work truck was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Dulaney Valley Road early this morning.

Police were called to the scene north of Chapelwood Lane around 3:29 a.m. after the driver unexpectedly crossed the oncoming traffic lane and struck a mailbox and guardrail, causing the truck to overturn. The truck skidded into a BGE pole where it finally came to rest. The driver, Charles David Myers Jr (50) of the 200 block of Spencer Circle in Forest Hill, was working at the time of the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team continues to investigate to determine the cause of the crash. Cause and manner of death will be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner following an autopsy.
