A Folcroft man stands accused of setting a series of recent fires in his hometown, including two that damaged two residences.
Brian Baglivo, 23, of the 2000 block of Delmar Drive, was charged Friday with arson, Police Chief Bob Ruskowski said.
Ruskowski said Baglivo confessed to the arsons just before he was about to take a lie-detector test.
Baglivo was already in custody Thursday on one count of burglary and 13 counts each of theft and receiving stolen property, the chief said, after police had searched his home. Those charges were unrelated to the arsons, he said.
