EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Police say four of the suspects connected to the dozen fires set after the Spartan loss to Duke in the NCAA Tournament are MSU students.
One student was arrested Thursday, who quickly posted bond. Police believe he's responsible for the couch fire that happened on the 700 block of Oak Street. He is expected to be arraigned in the next 10 days and is charged with intent to riot and for remaining within 300 feet of a fire, both misdemeanors. If convicted, he could face up to 90 days in jail, a $500 fine and/or be banned from a college campus.
"It ties up an inordinate amount of our resources which prohibits us from policing other parts of the city effectively," said Capt. Jeff Murphy with ELPD.
The city's attorney, Tom Yeadon, also decided to drop charges against two MSU students accused of setting fire to a TV.
"It doesn't appear that we have sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, so we've decided to dismiss those charges," said Yeadon. "There's the possibility than an investigation could lead to additional charges."
At this point, the number of suspects involved in furniture torchings are down from four to two. Michigan State University spokesperson, Kent Cassella, said the school is not involved in the investigations. "MSU's administration does not take unilateral action against a student for criminal offenses or other transgressions."
Police are pushing for witnesses to come forward. A $500 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for setting these fires.
