(TULSA, Okla.) Tulsa Police are asking for the public’s help locating a man accused of starting an arson fire in December. Carlos Cooper, 46, is wanted for First Degree Arson, Endangering Human Life During Arson and Domestic Assault And Battery. According to court documents, firefighters were called to a house fire on West 50th Place just before midnight December 22. When they got there, they found several fires burning throughout the house. Investigators later determined the fires had been intentionally set. A woman in the home told investigators Cooper, her live-in-boyfriend, had slapped her across the face earlier in the day, and the last time she saw him he was walking toward her house. She then went to the store, and when she got back the house was on fire and he was nowhere to be found. Cooper is described as a black male, 6 foot tall, weighing 230 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes. He will be held on a $42,000 bond once arrested. Police ask anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers, a Crime Prevention Network that pays cash rewards for information leading to the arrest of persons committing crimes.
