Investigators say a man arrested in a Houston fire captured on security video has claimed responsibility for more than a dozen blazes.
Harris County Jail records 25-year-old show Jacob Colby Garvin was held Wednesday on arson and criminal mischief charges. Bond is $80,000 for Garvin, who was arrested June 13.
Investigators Tuesday announced details on the blazes, including a May 1 fire at a tire shop captured on security video. Garvin also faces charges over May fires at a leasing office and a restaurant.
Nobody was hurt.
Investigators say Garvin has acknowledged setting at least 15 fires.
Online jail records did not list an attorney for Garvin. Court records show he's a registered offender after being convicted in 2007 of attempted sexual assault in Williamson County.
