Police arrest two alleged church arsonists

Monday, February 22, 2010 - 7:54pm

A pair of arrests are made in a string of church fires in East Texas.

Authorities have taken 19-year-old Jason Robert Bourque and 21-year-old Daniel George McAllister into custody.

Officials suspect the two are responsible for ten church fires since January first.

Police have charged the suspects, both from the Tyler area, with only one count of felony arson.

More charges are expected later this week.

Property damage at the churches is estimated to be in the millions.
