A man believed to be responsible for targeting multiple Connecticut EMS agencies with molotov cocktails has been arrested in Pennsylvania.

On Sunday, authorities said 37-year-old Richard White allegedly threw the improvised incendiary weapons at several locations across the state. The assault caused multiple fires.

Local police said White was taken into custody Saturday and is now awaiting extradition back to Connecticut. Officials believe the suspect, who works as an EMT in Connecticut, specifically targeted all four of the locations.

“I do know that this all unfolded quickly under a short amount of time,” stated Sgt. Paul Makuc. “The first fire it was reported in Old Saybrook shortly after four o’clock and the last fire in Roxbury was shortly reported shortly after six o’clock.”

White has been charged with third-degree arson and third-degree burglary. Police noted, the case will likely result in additional charges as the investigation continues
