PASADENA, Texas – An anonymous Crime Stoppers tip led to the arrests of two teen arson suspects, Crime Stoppers and the Pasadena Fire Marshal’s Office announced Tuesday.

The suspects were recently featured by Crime Stoppers in connection with a fire at Bailey Elementary in Pasadena.

Firefighters responded to a Dumpster fire at the school around 3:35 a.m. on November 13, 2011.

As they worked to contain that fire, a second fire was discovered at the scene.

Investigators later determined the cause of both fires to be arson.

On December 6, 2011, Crime Stoppers released a photo of the suspects, asking citizens to help identify them.

That same day, Crime Stoppers received a tip identifying the suspects, aged 15 and 14.

The suspects were charged with felony arson on December 7, 2011.
