Tuscaloosa authorities are searching for a arson suspect.
On April 13, Tuscaloosa Police officers responded to a residence on 36th Ave. on calls of a possible arson. Upon arrival, officers met an 18-year-old female who said she was at the residence when her ex-boyfriend kicked in a door and started an argument.
After locking herself in a bathroom, the victim says the suspect grabbed a baseball bat and began hitting walls and the bathroom door. The suspect then said he would burn the house down if she did not come out.
The victim smelled gasoline a short time later and left the home.
Officers located burning material near what appeared to be gas poured around the door and house. Neither the 18-year-old or another resident at the house were injured during the incident.
After processing and interviewing witnesses, investigators obtained warrants for the victim's ex-boyfriend.
Jacquantis Dewayne Noland-Turner, 22, is wanted on arson and burglary.
Noland-Turner is 5 foot, 9 inches, 175 pounds and has a tattoo of a cross on his forehead. Authorities say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information regarding Noland-Turner's whereabouts is asked to contact local law enforcement.
