Maryland Man Charged in Rehabilitation Center Arson

June 29, 2009

A 22-year-old Maryland man has been charged in an arson at a rehabilitation facility.

The fire caused about $50,000 in damage to the Go-Getters rehabilitation center in Salisbury over the weekend. Officials say gasoline had been poured throughout the building and the building had been ransacked.

Deputy state fire marshal Joseph Zurolo says Edward Sterner is charged with second-degree arson, second- and fourth-degree burglary counts, two counts of felony vandalism, malicious burning and felony theft.

Zurolo says investigators got a tip that Sterner might be involved in the arson and was heading to the bus station to leave town. He says people at the station alerted officials when he showed up at there.
