$19,000 Reward Presented in Washington Arson Case

October 25, 2011

Police, fire and insurance officials are presenting a reward of nearly $19,000 Monday to a Seattle, Wash., woman and her brother who provided information that helped convict a man in the Greenwood arson case.

Nineteen fires set in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood in 2009 caused damage estimated at more than $2 million.

A tip led to the arrest of Kevin Todd Swalwell who pleaded guilty to setting 10 fires and was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

One of the fires damaged the Taproot Theater where the reward is being presented Monday.
