Police describe the man as a black male, 38 to 45 years old, between 6′ and 6’2″ in height, with a light complexion. He is also described as “scruffy,” and he has been seen wearing light-brown Dickies work pants and a hoodie with a design on the back.

When asked in an e-mail if identifying the man would make someone eligible for the $50,000 arson tip reward, Public Information Officer Charles Francis wrote, “He isn’t a suspect. He is someone who may have information that can help the ongoing investigation.”
