It was reported that he was involved in the arson which happened in the neighboring area.

Let me explain the difference between "neighborhood" and "neighboring area":
"neighborhood" is the area where you ARE IN, including the immediate surrounding area (like within a few block of where you are).
"neighboring area" is OUTSIDE of the area where you are in. It means the area that is NEXT to your neighborhood (maybe several miles away from where you are).
Law is NOT done by formulating, but by LEGISLATING.
