A suspected arson case was bound over to Lucas County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday after the suspect’s initial arraignment in Toledo Municipal Court.
Nathan Wietrzykowski, 24, of 651 Pearl St. was arrested by the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at about 10 a.m. Tuesday. During arraignment his bond was set at $100,000. He waived a preliminary hearing and the case was bound over.
Police said they identified Mr. Wietrzykowski as the man in a June 2 surveillance recording showing the attempted arson at the West Toledo Masonic Complex, 5025 Secor Rd.
In the video, the man emerges from a vehicle and walks toward the complex. A burst of light appears, allegedly the fire. One of the suspect’s hands appears to catch fire as well. No injuries were reported, but the incident caused about $300 damage, officials said.
