Arson investigators hope phone records will help them track down the person who fire-bombed the North Slappey Taco Bell.

Wednesday, investigator Sam Harris began the process to subpoena records to determine who called the restaurant early Sunday morning threatening to "redecorate" the building. The caller was dissatisfied with the amount of meat in his Chalupa. A little later, someone threw a Molotov cocktail at the drive-through window.

Police recovered a melted plastic bottle with what's believed to be gasoline inside. Investigators are also trying to enhance dark surveillance video. Police are asking anyone with information on the crime to call Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.
