Police: Teenage boy arrested in Tucson arson fires

TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say a teenager has been arrested in connection
with several arson fires in Tucson this week.

Tucson police say the 14-year-old Tucson boy is being held on suspicion of four
counts of arson of a structure, two counts of criminal damage, two counts of
arson of property and one count of third-degree burglary.

They say all are felony offenses.

The name of the boy is being withheld because he’s a minor.

Police say he was transported and booked Thursday into the Pima County Juvenile
Correctional Center.

Investigators from the Tucson police and fire departments believe the teen is
responsible for arson fires of cars and garbage bins around the city on
Wednesday and Thursday.
