TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

A teenager has been arrested in connection with several arson fires in Tucson this week.

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, police said.

They said all are felony offenses.

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

Police said 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.
