TUCSON, Ariz. -- A man is in custody in connection with an arson fire at the Tucson convenience store where he works.

Tucson police said 27-year-old Granville Stinnette is being held on suspicion of one count of arson of a structure.

A fire was reported at a Circle K store on Dec. 29 and police said Stinnette was working at the store at that time.
