Three people have been arrested in connection to an arson investigation.

The fire in this investigation happened at the beginning of September on Industrial Boulevard, which is behind the Chili's restaurant in Grand Junction.

Eric Booker, 25, Christopher Booker, 42, and Britney Bowker, 21, were arrested on arson, burglary and theft charges. They were arrested Wednesday in the 3200 block of D 1/2 Road, according to a release from the Grand Junction Police Department.

Police say they found several items were stolen from the businesses housed in the building, including a credit card, which one of the suspects used. A truck was also missing.

Police tracked the use of the stolen credit card, and then used the surveillance footage from the businesses to look for the suspects.

Law enforcement arrested them at a house on D 1/2 Road, according to the press release.
