Local Man Being Charged in Arson Case

Panama City Police are charging a local man in a three week old arson case.

They arrested 29 year old Dustan Lizotte today on one count of arson. They said Lizotte set a car on fire in front of a home on James Avenue on June 18. Investigators said Lizotte poured gasoline into the open passenger window and ignited it.

They said the fire was retaliation for an argument the two men had earlier and fortunately no one was hurt.

Lizotte is due in court Friday for a bond hearing.
