CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- Police have arrested an 18-year-old man for allegedly starting a fire at a Chandler Target. The police report states that the fire caused $7,000 in damage.

Jonathan Rehrmann, a Tucson resident, faces charges of arson, marijuana use and possession.

He is accused of setting a shopping cart on fire in the parking lot of the Target store at Arizona Avenue and Ocotillo Road. The fire spread to a covered shade structure which caused extensive damage. 

On June 10, Rehrmann admitted to police that he used a lighter to start the fire.

According to the police report, Rehrmann said he started the fire because "he was just bored and did not expect the fire to get out of control."

A Target employee told police Rehrmann was seen in front of the store, checking the front door, just before the fire started.

Police say Rehrmann is also a stolen vehicle suspect in Chandler, a crime he admitted to during questioning. 

He also admitted possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Rehrmann was ordered held on $5,000 in bail. He is due in court June 17.
