HOLLIS — A Hollis landlord was arrested today on felony charges after his tenant discovered a large amount of gasoline had been spread underneath his mobile home.

The two men have been having a dispute over rent, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office. Gary Keene, 42, owns the mobile home being rented by Robert Mushero at 574 Plains Road in Hollis.

Keene woke Mushero at 5:45 a.m. this morning saying there was a hazardous situation, the sheriff’s office said. Outside, Mushero could smell a strong odor of gasoline coming from under the mobile home.

Mushero called the Hollis Fire Department which confirmed the high gas vapor readings and opened up the area beneath the mobile home to air it out.

Keene returned to the mobile home and made incriminating statements, suggesting that he had poured the gasoline under the mobile home, the sheriff’s office said. He was trying to force Mushero to move out of the mobile home, the sheriff’s office said. He was charged with reckless conduct, a felony.
