Arnold is the second West Precinct officer to be charged in connection to the arsons. Another BPD West Rrecinct officer, Curtis Thornton, 27, was charged June 1 in connection to one of the Ensley arsons.
The second suspect charged Friday is Anthony Weaver, a 48-year-old man from Birmingham. Weaver is not a Birmingham police officer or employee with the City of Birmingham.
"The investigation has progressed well as we continue to dig deeper into this arson investigation," BPD Police Chief A.C. Roper said. "We are still chasing leads but the evidence thus far has led us to arrest another officer. I am pleased that our investigators are representing the department with professionalism and honor as they conduct a methodical and comprehensive investigation."
A total of 14 arson cases in the west Birmingham area are being investigated. Police say the fires were set between May 9 and May 21.
Arnold and Weaver are charged in connection to setting the fires reported in the 2000 block of Ensley Avenue and the 2000 block of Warrior Road, BPD spokesman Sgt. Johnny Williams said in a release. Thornton was charged in connection to a fire set in the 1000 block of 29th Street in Ensley.
Birmingham mayor William Bell issued a statement about the second arrest of a Birmingham police officer:
"We are certainly disappointed that the evidence has led us to an internal arrest. However, I am impressed with the speed of the investigation and the fact that our Police Department has left no stone unturned. The Birmingham Police Department is committed to excellence and to the safety of each of the citizens in our City and that holds true today."
