TWIN FALLS — A Twin Falls man was charged with second-degree arson Sunday night after police say he set his pickup truck on fire.

According to Sgt. Dusty Solomon of the Twin Falls Police Department, first responders arrived at the 100 block of Austin Avenue shortly after 6:30 p.m. to find a white pickup ablaze. The pickup’s owner, Gary Griggs, 56, was also at the scene.

Solomon said the vehicle was a total loss and that the owner is suspected of setting it on fire. She didn’t know of a motive.

The pickup was the only vehicle damaged and there was no other property loss, she said.

Griggs’ bond was set at $25,000 and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 13.
