Margate Police arrested a Pennsylvania man Friday for setting two cars on fire this month one street apart from each other.

Matthew Byrne, 23, of Bristol Township, Pa., allegedly set ablaze a car on the 100 Block of North Monroe Avenue on July 10, then did the same thing to another car on South Madison Avenue on July 16.

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.
