Texas Police Seek Man in Miniskirt Over Bank Arson

Police are seeking a man in a black miniskirt seen on security video breaking into a Central Texas bank, splashing liquid on the carpet and setting the place on fire.

Cedar Park police on Wednesday said the suspect remains at large.

The break-in happened Sunday night at a closed Lone Star Bank. The bank suffered minor damage.

Cmdr. Bryan Wukasch says it's pretty clear that the man's intent was to commit arson. Police don't believe he stole anything.

Investigators are trying to determine if the case is linked to several other fires this year in Cedar Park, 15 miles north of Austin.

Authorities on Tuesday released security video of the break-in and blaze. An alarm led emergency responders to the fire, which had burned itself out.
