      Over the past few days, you may have wondered why the Walgreens on Whispering Pines & Dawson Road has been closed.

      FOX 31 News has learned it's the result of an upset employee.

      That employee is Emmanuel Sylvestre.

      Fire officials say Sunday night Sylvestre was unhappy with a decision his boss made, and therefore he retaliated by starting a small fire.

      That fire led to damaging things inside the store which resulted in him being charged with arson in the first degree.
