Austin firefighters alerted police to a small fire that had happened near the campus Monday night. The fire involved a book bag, thought to have belonged to Weiser. A surveillance video was released by police of a possible suspect, which jogged the memories of the firefighters and led to the arrest of Criner. A woman that saw him start the fire also called into police after seeing the video.

Firefighters found Criner at the scene of the fire with a woman’s bicycle and blue duffel bag, matching items that belonged to Weiser. When he was arrested Thursday at the youth shelter, he still had some of her belongings.
