A Roosevelt man is responsible for a morning fire at a Lynbrook hotel, according to Nassau County Police.
Cops arrested Diquan Booker, 25, of Roosevelt, on Thursday after an investigation into a suspicious fire at Lynbrook's Holiday Inn Express.
Lynbrook Fire Department responded to an alarm from the hotel at 7:54 a.m. on Sept. 28, cops said. Responders found smoke and water flowing out of an unoccupied Room 114 and the building was evacuated, reported police. Firefighters and automatic sprinklers were able to extinguish the fire without injuries.
The Nassau County Fire Marshal deemed the fire suspicious in nature and an investigation led to Booker, cops said.
Booker was found Tuesday in a car on Charles Lindburgh Boulevard at 12:45 p.m. and was arrested at the scene, cops said, adding he was found with marijuana.
Booker was charged with second-degree arson, first-degree reckless endangerment, unlawful possession of marijuana, and an unrelated warrant charge. He will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
