KINGSTON – An 18-year-old man and a younger teen boy torched a pick-up truck in the 300 block of East Railroad Street in Kingston about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, authorities said Wednesday.

Richard J. Bold Jr., 18, of the 200 block of West Street in Kingston, and a younger boy from Kingston had an ongoing dispute with the truck's owner, according to a DeKalb County Sheriff's news release. Bold was charged with arson and criminal damage to property, while the younger boy was referred to the juvenile division of court services.

Bold was arrested Wednesday afternoon and taken to DeKalb County Jail. A judge will set his bond this morning. If convicted of the more serious charge, arson, he could be sentenced to probation or up to seven years in prison.
