Tucson police released photos Monday in connection with an arson at a tattoo business Dec. 7.

Detectives from the Special Investigations Division are investigating the 4:40 a.m. arson at K42 Tattoo at 3455 E. Speedway, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.

Detectives are asking the public to help identify the man seen in the photographs obtained from surveillance video footage from K42 Tattoo, Hawke said.

The man might be Hispanic or white, about 6 feet one-inch tall, and weigh about 200 pounds. The man might be associated with an older model truck, said Hawke.

In addition to the arson fire at the Speedway location, detectives are also investigating a Dec. 28 arson fire at 5:19 a.m. at K42 Tattoo and Body Piercing at 6142 E. 22nd St., said Hawke.

Both tattoo parlors are owned by Nicholas Becker.

Detectives found evidence indicating that both fires are linked. Anyone with information on either of the fires is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
