CALDWELL — A Caldwell man was arrested Monday on suspicion of being connected to multiple arsons at Towns Village Mobile Home Park.

The Canyon County Sheriff’s Office arrested Darin L. Moore, 42, when he told law enforcement he was responsible for the Feb. 26 arson and six previous arson fires at Towns Village Mobile Home Park, according to a Canyon County Sheriff's Office press release.

The arsons began in November 2015, according to the release.

Moore was taken into custody Monday afternoon without incident. He’s been charged with seven counts of felony arson in the first degree.

In an interview with detectives, according to police, Moore said he knew each residence was unoccupied at the time and that he started each fire in a similar fashion.

Moore is being held in the Canyon County jail on a $150,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. March 28.

“This is a very important step in resolving the investigation into multiple fires that were deliberately set in our community,” Sheriff Kieran Donahue said in the release. “Arson is its own particularly heinous crime, as people’s livelihoods and personal property can be and are destroyed. I want to thank our detectives and the Canyon County Fire Investigation Team for their work in identifying and bringing Mr. Moore into custody.”
