GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have put together a profile of a suspect they believe deliberately set fire to a railroad bridge in Gilbert.

Gilbert police said Tuesday that they are searching for a suspect in an arson incident that occurred last month near Higley and Gilbert roads.

According to police, investigators and criminal profilers from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms believe the suspect is a male who has been verbal about a work-related grievance.

They also believe the suspect is connected to the Union Pacific Railroad or the Gilbert area.

The suspect may have minor burns on his hands.

Authorities say a fire was lit on a bridge along the SRP canal Aug. 15 in the evening hours.

A $15,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
