HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police have arrested a man who may be linked to a string of intentionally-set fires at Waikiki hotels.
He was previously identified as a person of interest in the investigation after surveillance cameras captured him at the Alohilani Resort, the Waikiki Beachcomber, and the Grand Waikikian last week.
Authorities believe the fires were diversions to break into rooms.
In police records, the man was identified as 36-year-old Adrian Cook.
Cook was taken into custody Tuesday in Kaimuki, but not for arson. Instead, it was in connection with a burglary warrant.
Rick Egged, Waikiki Improvement Association president, said people have been on edge in Waikiki in the wake of the fires.
“Of course this was a matter of grave concern," he said. “It created a situation where everybody was on edge until this situation could get resolved. Of course at this point, we only know that this is a suspect.”
HFD said damage at the three hotels was estimated at nearly $1.8 million.
Cook’s bail was set at $50,000.
