Cleveland, OH - U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott and Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams announce the arrest of 29-year-old James Greathouse. Greathouse was wanted by the Cleveland Division of Police for arson. Authorities say they arrested a man who allegedly set fire to a car belonging to Frank Q. Jackson that was linked to a homicide two-years-ago.

Late Thursday night, members of the U.S. Marshals fugitive task force in Houston, Texas arrested James Greathouse in an apartment complex parking lot at 19400 W. Belford Street, Richmond, Texas. It is alleged by police that James Greathouse set a vehicle on fire belonging to Jackson a few days after it was seen fleeing the scene of Antonio Parra’s murder in 2019.

Greathouse was booked at the Ft. Bend County Jail on the arson charge and is awaiting extradition back to Northeast Ohio.
