Police have arrested a man who is accused of intentionally setting a fire at a motel in Newington earlier this year. Officers served an active arrest warrant on 27-year-old Guillermo Serrano, of Manchester, on Tuesday. A detective from the Hartford Police Fugitive Task Force identified Serrano sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle in Hartford. After a short foot pursuit, officers said Serrano was taken into custody and turned over to the Newington Police Department. Serrano is accused of forcing entry into a room at the Grantmoor Motor Lodge on the Berlin Turnpike and setting a fire while guests were in other rooms at the motel on February 13. Serrano is facing charges including burglary, arson, criminal mischief and reckless endangerment. He was held on $1 million bond and was in court on Wednesday.
