WALDORF, Md. – With the assistance of the Maryland State Apprehension Team, Deputy State Fire Marshals arrested a Prince Georges County woman on multiple charges of arson stemming from two separate firebombings last October. 

Latrice Joneah Williams, 20, of Upper Marlboro, was arrested on multiple charges, including Arson 1st Degree and Manufacturing and Possession of a Destructive Device, after investigators connected her to two firebombings in Charles and St. Mary’s counties. 

On October 14, 2021, Deputy State Fire Marshals were called to the 3800 block of Shiner Court in Waldorf after the owner discovered the remains of a Molotov cocktail in his front yard. The Molotov cocktail did not function properly and failed to cause significant structural damage. 

Investigators obtained video footage showing a person throwing the firebomb at the house the night before, just after 11:00 p.m. 

On the following night, just after 11:00 p.m. on October 15th, Deputy State Fire Marshals responded to the 25100 block of Gallant Man Drive in Hollywood after the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded for a person who had three Molotov cocktails thrown at a house.

The owner told investigators he was inside the home when he heard a noise and later discovered the devices just feet from his door, with one still burning.

He was able to extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher.

Over the last six months, investigators have gathered evidence, including cell phone records, which led to the identification of Williams. 

Williams was arrested without incident yesterday morning and held without bond at the Charles County Detention Center.

“I’m very thankful for our investigators’ vigilance, tenacity, and thoughtfulness,” State Fire Marshal Brian S. Geraci said. “Hopefully, the families impacted can sleep easier tonight, knowing these individuals have been apprehended.”

  1. Slo’ Joe’s crew.
    ‘It’ probably wouldn’t do it anymore, with Joe’s non-self-reliant energy program driving gasoline prices sky high. At least not until ‘It’ got some of that free (tax payers’) money.

        1. I guess I’ll just have to reminisce about all that peace, $1.60 gas, secured borders, no inflation, rising wages, more jobs than ever, allies and adversaries who respected or feared us, strong military, strong economy and some hilariously funny, true Tweets and try to handle the Orwellian world ya’ll have chosen to create.
          FJB!

          1. Go for it… and continue living in the fear you preach. You’ll have a stroke sooner rather than later.

  2. this is a mugshot , I am surprised they let her keep in her colored contacts ….

    1. Why should she? Because she’s pretty? She doesn’t appear ashamed or remorseful; she just looks angry that she got caught! Why did she victimize those people?

  3. Hard to imagine that much evil behind those pretty eyes. Well, at least she dyed her brows too… I wonder what her motive was?

    1. Watching waayyy too many Marvel/DC Comic movies & thinking she is a “cool” villain.

  4. She looks so young and innocent. But that is some seriously bad stuff that she was doing. Lock the pretty lady up for years.

    1. Looks can be deceiving. She’s a cutie just like Lisa Lopez (from TLC) was until she burned down her BF’s mansion then died in a crazed car crash.
