The store manager showed surveillance footage that showed an individual walking into the bathroom and smoke coming out of it shortly after. The individual was then attended to by SMFD due to a laceration he had sustained on his hand. After reviewing footage, Valentin Sanchez Jr. was arrested for 451(B) PC- Arson.
