Florida Teenager Arrested for Arson, Burglary, and Credit Card Fraud in Panama City Crime Spree

In Panama City, Florida, 16-year-old Hunter Glenn McNeil faces multiple charges following a 24-hour crime spree involving arson and burglaries. The incidents began when McNeil failed to return to school on Thursday afternoon, prompting a police search.

The spree started with a fire at the Bay County Library on Thursday evening, followed closely by another fire nearby, reported just 20 minutes later. Subsequently, a homeowner on the same street as the library reported their front door wreath set ablaze. Shortly afterward, a carport in the vicinity was also reported to be on fire.

Police linked McNeil to these arsons through surveillance footage, noting he was in the same attire he wore to school that day. During the investigations, reports of two car burglaries emerged, involving a stolen laptop and wallet with credit cards. One of the credit card owners reported an attempted use of their card on the same street where the initial crimes occurred, just before 6 a.m.

McNeil has been charged with two counts of burglary of a conveyance, one count of criminal mischief, two counts of arson of an unoccupied dwelling, one count of arson of an occupied dwelling, and two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.
