In addition, North Huntingdon Police issued a warrant for Steban on weapons charges following the house fire over the weekend.
According to police paperwork, the North Huntingdon home that caught fire on Saturday night — in the series of incidents that police want to talk to Steban about — is listed under his own name.
It is an address that Steban has provided to the courts in the past. The fire broke out at the home on N. Thompson Lane on Saturday night, prompting the ATF to get involved in the investigation.
Steban has hired private attorneys in the past to defend him in some of these cases.
KDKA’s Meghan Schiller says she has reached out to find out if Steban has made contact with any of those attorneys. She has not heard back yet.
