Two sailors stationed on the USS George Washington have been charged with arson in connection with an April fire, according to a release from the Virginia Beach Fire Department.

Around 1:30 a.m. on the morning of April 4, there was a call about a possible brush fire on Berknor Drive in the Virginia Village neighborhood, near General Booth Boulevard and Prosperity Road, the release said.

Firefighters found a 2016 Dodge Charger ablaze, according to the release.

The Charger was owned by Timothy Warren Wright II, a 24-year-old sailor. Portsmouth Police arrested Wright on charges of arson and conspiracy.

A second suspect, 21-year-old Tre'Von Jabri Bishop, was arrested in Norfolk by Virginia Beach fire investigators and agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Both men have been released on bond.
