OSBI Arrests Waurika Arson Suspect   

Early Saturday morning, fire crews were called to the First United Methodist Church in Waurika.  The State Fire Marshall was called in since arson was suspected.  OSBI was also requested to help with the investigation.

After several interviews, OSBI determined the suspect was a Texas man visiting relatives in Waurika.  Late Saturday night agents drove to Wichita Falls, Texas, and arrested 19-year-old Justin Blake Adams on complaints of second degree burglary and second degree arson.  He now sits in a Texas jail awaiting an extradition hearing.  A judge set his bond at $100,000.
