(Glastonbury, Conn./WTIC) - Glastonbury Police say one suspect is in custody and they're looking for a second man in connection with an arson fire last year in town.

It was September 24, 2018 when officers say 27-year-old Ahmad Lababneh and 23-year-old Momen Almefleh conspired to set a home ablaze at 138 Naubuc Avenue.

Detectives say two vehicles were also torched in the incident.

Those inside the home, including two small children, weren't injured.

Police say Almefleh is believed to have fled to Amman, Jordan shortly after an interview with detectives.

Lababneh faces charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, conspiracy to commit arson, and conspiracy to commit criminal mischief.

His bond was set at $750,000.

Anyone with any information on Almefleh's whereabouts is urged to contact Glastonbury Police.
