Trucking company owner arrested on suspicions of burning his own business

An employee involved in the scheme turned himself in last week.

A second man has been arrested in connection to an alleged arson at a West Virginia trucking company last year. 

The fire broke out on May 25th at Anytime Trucking Company in Elkins and caused an estimated $60,000 in damages, reported WOWKTV News.  

After 13 months of police investigation, the first suspect in the case, Elwood “Lynn” Hebb, turned himself in to police on June 3rd. Hebb was an employee at the trucking company in question. Now, 43-year-old Jason B. Collins, owner of Anytime Trucking, was arrested on Wednesday and is being charged with one count of 1st degree arson, three counts of 3rd degree arson, one count of burning insured property, and one count of conspiracy. 

Collins is currently being held at the Tygart Valley Regional Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash only bond – the same jail where Hebb is being held.
