BEND, OR -- A Bend transient is accused of setting four small fires, early Monday morning. 

 

The first was reported after 1 a.m. near Sawyer Park. About an hour later, a small fire was spotted near Empire and Jamison, then a fire started in the median of the Parkway near Butler Market Road; the fourth fire was reported at about 2:30 a.m. near the railroad tracks south of Empire Ave. 

 

Prior to the fires, police believe 64-year-old Lynn Merle Mowry called 911 from two northeast Bend motels, but did not have a true emergency. 

 

Mowry was arrested following a 90-minute search by officers, including a K9. He was evaluated at St. Charles in Bend prior to being booked at the jail. 
 
Mowry faces multiple counts of Arson and Misuse of 911. He's due in court Tuesday afternoon. 
 
 
Mugshot provided by DCSO is of Mowry following a prior arrest, last week.
