Phillip James Marshall was booked into the Mesa County jail on at least three charges of first degree arson over the weekend.

It is not clear whether this person is the serial arsonist Police have been looking for.

Police had set up a task force and special tip line to try and catch a man shown on a surveillance tape lighting one of the fires.

Police say the man in caught on tape is the man responsible for setting more than 16 fires in the past few months.
