A man is behind bars after police say he tried to start a fire outside a popular Grand Junction restaurant.

At around 7:30 Sunday evening, officers were called out to Old Chicago's on North Avenue on a report that a man was trying to light a newspaper rack on fire.

When police arrived they found charred paper and matches nearby.
the suspect was found behind the old Go–Fer Food Store on First and North.

Officers were unable to identify man and believe he is homeless. He was not carrying identification.

Police don't believe the man they arrested is the serial arsonist they are searching for and are asking folks to remain vigilant.
