North Port man and woman charged with arson after setting off fireworks in woods

NORTHERN PORT

A woman and a man were arrested Friday as suspects in multiple North Port arson attacks from several weeks ago.

The North Harbor Police Department said it was investigating fires that started in a mostly undeveloped area in the northeast of the city. Aaliyah Stone, 18, and David Moore, 30, were arrested after investigators said they discovered they were both buying local fireworks, such as Roman candles, and shooting them into the woods.

Stone and Moore face multiple charges, including eight counts of malicious burning of land. No damage to any structures occurred.

North Port Police spokesman Josh Taylor said, “We are starting to see what appears to be fireworks and candles roaming the scene around where these fires started. So that’s definitely related. So we started investigating local establishments that sell these types of products. And that eventually led us to some potential suspects.”
