A neighbor saw the suspect break a window to get into the home, 620 S. Blaine, said Sgt. Brandon Riley of the Grand Island Police Department. Officers found evidence that the man was trying to burn items inside the house, Riley said.

The suspect will be charged with burglary, arson and obstruction. Police were called to the home at about 6:15 p.m. He was arrested at 6:30, Riley said. Grand Island firefighters were also on the scene.
