Huntsville Police are looking for a man who threw lit gas cans at two homes.

Police responded to a home on Hilltop Terrace where a lit gas can was thrown at the window of the home.

Officials said the offender also threw a bottle at a home on Knollwood Drive. The bottle broke a window pane but did not catch fire.

Neither home sustained any structural damage.

Both victims reported seeing the offender run back into his truck and drive away. They also said they knew the man.

Police believe the suspect is Craig P. Emerson. At this time, a motive is not known.

If you have any information on Emerson's whereabouts, contact Huntsville Police.
