PERRYSBURG, Ohio — An Indiana man suspected of starting a fire in a landmark mosque has been moved to Ohio, where he's in custody on $400,000 bond.

Randy Linn of St. Joe is being held in connection with Sunday's fire at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo in northwest Ohio. The Perrysburg Municipal Court says he's charged with aggravated arson, aggravated burglary and carrying a concealed weapon.

The Ohio fire marshal's office has said investigators believe the 52-year-old Linn is the person recorded by a surveillance camera outside the center. The fire caused smoke and water damage in a prayer room at the mosque, which sits along a major highway and has a golden dome that's visible for miles.

A message was left Thursday with the public defender representing Linn.
