According to a source with the Ohio State Fire Marshal's office, an arrest has been made in connection to Sunday's arson at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo.
A detective with Perrysburg Township Police would only say the investigation is "continuing" and would not name the suspect.
However, the Toledo Blade was able to obtain the name from Indiana authorities.
The paper says the accused arsonist is 52-year-old Randy T. Linn of St. Joe, Indiana.
Linn has now been charged with two counts of arson, and one count each of aggravated burglary as well as carrying a concealed weapon.
The suspect was picked up Tuesday afternoon near Fort Wayne, Indiana.
On Monday night, Police released three surveillance photos of a "person of interest" in the case.
Shane Cartmill, state fire marshal spokesman, told the Toledo Blade that Linn is the person in those images.
No one was inside the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo when the fire was set Sunday evening.
Officials have not released a damage estimate for the blaze.
