the case that landed him on the state's arson registry

They have a registry for that?

I figured he'd be the one with 3rd degree burns on his wang.

Channel 2 (KTVU) played a jail house interview they did with him in the 1990's for arsons he committed then.

Referring to him more than once as a "firebug" is a little bizarre.

Article fails to mention what actual evidence they have on the guy.  It says they followed him for 2 days, the raided his house.  What did they find?

They searched the arsonist database and matched him with surveillance camera pictures. All the fires were within a few blocks of his trailer home.

Found fire starting equip in his house.

Doesn't matter, he's clearly a sex offender and I'll sleep better knowing someone who looks like that is off the street.

He's supposedly conserved, so likely has mental stability issues in addition to his criminal tendencies.

ok, matching pics, maybe. but it said they were shiatty pics.  Evidence you find after the raid, does not justify the raid itself.  nor does location.  that would probable cause to search every single home in the city. ala boston bombers and chris dorner.

Assuming they have the right guy, I hope he's never free again.

But it does make me nervous that they don't seem to have any actual evidence.  I think they should have watched him a bit longer and made sure they had a good solid case.

Other than "He looks like the type and he started some fires before", they don't seem to have much of a case.  Presumably they had a warrant, but doesn't that warrant require some evidence? And when they  broke into his house, what did they find as evidence?  Someone above said "fire starting equipment".  Does that mean he owned a cigarette lighter?  A box of matches?  Did he have a gas can sitting next to his lawn mower?  Was his BBQ grill hooked up to a propane tank?  There are a lot of us who "have fire starting equipment", but I'm not sure that's convincing evidence that we are arsonists.

I find it easy to believe that he's the right guy, and if he is, I don't want him walking free.  But he may well go free because they seemed to have jumped the gun on the "break into his house and then arrest him" stuff.

I think his history and location could potentially merit a search warrant, no?

Another article stated the surveillance videos were "crucial" evidence.

Also, i shouldn't have said they found fire starting equip. That was an assumption. They said they found evidence conclusively linking him to the crimes, which could be a number of things, like burned clothes.
