The Stranger has a very interesting story asking why it took so long to catch suspected Greenwood arsonist Kevin Todd Swalwell.

According to the article, “court documents show that police had clues as early as this summer that Swalwell—a neighborhood fixture with a criminal record as a repeat arsonist—was the culprit.”

Olive You owner Timur Leno says that if Swalwell was captured sooner, his business wouldn’t have been damaged in a Nov. 9 fire.
