A Mayes County man suspected in a series of arson fires is behind bars. 26-year-old Timothy Reed was arrested at his home near Foyil Thursday afternoon on two counts of second degree arson.

Investigators say he and 26-year-old Albert Paris set fire to an Adair barn Sunday, destroying it and hundreds of bales of hay inside, then torched a nearby home.

The two are suspected in more than a dozen other recent fires. Authorities are still looking for Paris.
