GLEN BURNIE, Md. — A woman is being sought for pouring gasoline in the parking lot of a Glen Burnie tackle shop, eventually igniting a small fire, the Anne Arundel County Fire Department said.

A small fire in the parking lot of Warrens Bait Box was noticed by Anne Arundel County Police who was on patrol. The fire was extinguished quickly before firefighters or the shop’s owner arrive. The owner said he had seen someone spreading gasoline in the area that did not catch on fire. Surveillance footage shows the woman carrying a red gas can and emptying its contents around a tarp-covered area.

Anne Arundel County Fire and Explosives personnel responded, collecting evidence for an investigation. Authorities also shared the surveillance footage.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect should contact 410-222-TIPS.
