VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - The person of interest in a string of arsons across central Florida could be extradited to face charges in Georgia.

Steven Angle is being held at the Volusia County Jail on a violation of probation charge in connection with a burglary case. He faced a judge at the jail Tuesday afternoon.

The 40-year-old has been talking to investigators about the arsons, which have happened in Sanford, Orlando and Daytona Beach.

Angle was arrested by Daytona Beach police on Saturday after a brief standoff.

Georgia authorities now have 30 days to extradite him, unless a local charge is filed against him.

"The only thing that could possibly stand in the way of him being extradited back to Georgia is if Florida would file a formal charge before the extradition occured. They may well keep him here to answer those charges," said WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer.

According to court records, Angle has an arraignment Wednesday afternoon.
