FLORISSANT, MO (AP) – Police in the St. Louis suburb of Florissant have an arson suspect behind bars, and a set of forgotten car keys is to blame.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch  reports that 19-year-old Adam C. Grant is accused of setting fire to three vehicles early Saturday in Florissant. Grant does not yet have an attorney.

Florissant police spokesman Andy Haarmann says detectives found keys at the site of one of the crimes and tracked down their owner, Grant, thanks in part to a rewards tag attached to the key chain. He is jailed on $50,000 bond.
