Three arrests were made in the past week in a vehicular arson that took place on June 12.

According to Douglas County Fire Inv. Dewayne Johnson, those arrested were Henry Carter, 49, Tradon Williams, 41, and Carlton Morrow, 42.

Carter is an employee at Atlanta Tech who allegedly hired Williams and Morrow to assist in the arson of his car for insurance money, according to court documents.

Johnson said that while the investigation originated in Lithonia, the crime itself took place in Douglas County.

On June 12, between the hours of 8:30 p.m and 9:30 p.m, court documents show that Williams and Morrow are accused of setting fire to the 2010 BMW owned by Carter on Legacy Park Drive in Lithia Springs.

Those records also show the vehicle was set on fire in order for Carter to claim insurance money from Allstate, who was insuring the vehicle.

Records show that Williams, a state Department of Family and Children Services worker, was arrested on Sept. 9 and charged with first degree felony arson; Morrow, was arrested on Sept. 13, and was also charged with first degree arson.

According to public records, Carter was arrested on Sept. 14, and was charged with first degree arson and insurance fraud.

Johnson said that all suspects in this case were apprehended.

An attorney for the three men was not listed as of Thursday morning, and all three have bonded out of jail.
