Santa Rosa police arrested a Sonoma County man today on suspicion of committing vehicle arsons this month, a police sergeant said. At least six vehicles were set on fire in the west Santa Rosa neighborhood between Valley West Drive, W. Third Street and Fulton Road between 11 p.m. and midnight on April 1, Sgt. Mike Lazzarini said.Small electronics, sunglasses and currency were taken from the unlocked vehicles before they were set on fire, Lazzarini said.
Police detectives and Santa Rosa Fire Department arson investigators worked on the case throughout April and got a warrant today from the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office for the arrest of Logan Dunning, 22, of Boyes Hot Springs, Lazzarini said.Detectives had interviewed Dunning on April 5 after they learned he had an argument with family members who live in the neighborhood of the arsons, Lazzarini said.
Dunning also matched the description of the suspect who was seen in a home video trying to open car doors when the arsons occurred, Lazzarini said. Police arrested Dunning today at the residence he shared with his grandmother in the 18000 block of Lucas Avenue in Boyes Hot Springs, Lazzarini said.
Dunning was booked into the Sonoma County jail on a felony arson warrant and violating his probation for a vehicle burglary in April 2009, Lazzarini said. The vehicle in the burglary case also was found to be on fire, Lazzarini said.
