    Steven Wayne Angle

    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-Journal reported 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 Angle 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.

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