Suspect in 30 fires being held in Volusia jail

PORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) - A Sanford man believed to be connected to over two dozen fires is being held in Volusia County Jail after being arrested in Daytona Beach.

The Daytona Beach News-Journalreported that 40-year-old Steven Wayne Angle was taken into custody following a short standoff with police in which he threatened to jump from a second floor balcony. He is charged with resisting an officer without violence, disorderly conduct and being a fugitive from justice.

Police believe Wayne started 30 fires in Central Florida. He is a suspect in the fire of a million-dollar oceanfront house in Volusia on Friday; the fourth suspected arson of a house in East Volusia County since Wednesday.

Wayne is held without bail and has a warrant out for a prohibition violation in Marion County, Georgia.
