(Teens connected to three arson fires)….Investigation is continuing to see if they are connected to others. The 4 teens were arrested Thursday by Brawley Police and ATF agents. They were booked into County Jail charged with arson, conspiracy to commit arson, commercial burglary, and conspiracy to commit commercial burglary. Their names cannot be released because of their ages. One is 15, the other three are 14 years of age. They were booked into the County Juvenile facility. Brawley police were investigating several arson fires in their city when they requested assistance from Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The ATF not only sent their agents but also their National Response Team. Brawley Police Commander Brett Houser says evidence from the latest fire, at the A-1 Furniture Store, combined with public information and evidence gathered by Brawley investigators at other arson sites, they were able to focus in on the teens.
