Pike Co. implicates neighbor in attempted arson

A Pike County man is in jail on arson charges after a neighbor accused him of trying to burn down his house. Police say a man on High Street in Virgie reported someone setting his house on fire. The flames were contained to the back of the house and no one was injured, and the arrest citation says troopers found Timothy Pryor walking nearby with a gas can. Pryor is charged with arson and alcohol intoxication and his bond has been set at $100,000.
