SBPD Make Arrests in String of Arsons

_________________________
The SBPD announces that three (3) arrests have been made in connection with a string of arson fires that have been set on the South and Southwest sides of the City.

Three male juveniles are currently being held at the Juvenile Justice Center (JJC) in connection with fires set on November 9th and 11th.

Juvenile #1, age 14, is being held on four (4) counts of Arson, Class B Felony (Nov. 9th and 11th fires, 1718/1801 S. Catalpa St and 230 E Milton St. & 231 E. Calvert St., respectively);
Juvenile #2, age 16, is being held on two (2) counts of Arson, Class B Felony (Nov. 9th fires, 230 E. Milton St. & 231 E. Calvert St.);
Juvenile #3, age 17, is being held on two (2) counts of Arson, Class B Felony (Nov. 9th fires, 230 E. Milton St. & 231 E. Calvert St.).

This investigation is ongoing and could be linked with as many as seven (7) additional arson fires (for a total of 11) committed in the area of Riley High School/ SB South Side, over the course of the last two months. It could also lead to other suspects and additional arrests.

The motive for these crimes appears to be a thrill/fascination with fire.

Anyone with information on these, or any other arson cases is asked to call the SBPD at 574.235.9263 or Crime Stoppers at 574.288.STOP.
