SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - The only person of interest in a string of Seminole County arsons could end of leaving the area.

Daytona Beach police captured Steven Angle after a suicidal standoff over the weekend.

Now authorities in Georgia are looking have him extradited because they said he violated probation.

Channel 9 legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said if Angle is sent to Georgia it could help local investigators.

"He is going to be in jail in Georgia. That gives investigators time to investigate their case and put a good solid case together."

The State Fire Marshal's office will not say what Angle, 40, has told them during questioning.

Investigators said they believe Angle might have information on the arsons. They said he has been talking with them.

"If he don't tell them, I don't know how they are going to build a case, unless they know something I don't know," said Augustus Malone, who lives across from one of the houses investigators said was burned by an arsonist.

Malone said he is troubled by the arsons.

"When I lay down at night, you know, I am just wondering if somebody going to throw a fire bomb in there," said Malone.

Angle was arrested Saturday afternoon on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct after investigators said he threatened to jump from a Daytona Beach balcony.

At the time police were trying to bring Angle in for allegedly violating probation, which was related to a burglary arrest in Georgia.

A Seminole County judge will decide if Angle will be sent to Georgia.
