Both incidents were ruled arson, and a security camera at the second location led to Byrne's arrest.

Police charged Byrne with two counts of arson and two counts of criminal mischief. He is in Atlantic County jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.

The way Byrne set fire to the cars is still under investigation.
