A Huron County grand jury has indicted a rural New London man accused of setting fire to a stolen truck.

Elliott J.M. Shepherd II, 27, of 2678 Jennings Road, New London, was indicted Friday on one count each of grand theft of a motor vehicle, theft, burglary and arson. The charges are in connection with a Dec. 28 incident.

"He allegedly stole his ex-father-in-law's truck and torched it -- along with a fancy welder," Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said.
