SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Two Sheboygan males face charges in connection to three area car arsons back in March. 20 year olds Mark Holtz and London Sprengel made initial appearances in Sheboygan County Court Thursday on charges of arson, attempted arson, and possession of Molotov cocktails.
According to a criminal complaint, two vehicles were set on fire on March 3 - one on North 37th Street in the Town of Sheboygan and the other on School Street in Sheboygan Falls. An attempted arson incident also happened at the Town of Sheboygan location ten days later.
An investigation led authorities to question Holtz and Sprengel, who would both admit to using gasoline to fill alcohol bottles to set the fires. It is alleged Holtz wanted payback from those who owed him money.
