Couch fires that damage hosue lead to arson investigation involving boy, 10
DECATUR (MCT) — A 10-year-old Decatur boy is being investigated by police for arson after he allegedly set two couches on fire Tuesday and caused $5,000 in damage to a residence in the 1300 block of East Condit Street.
A juvenile appointment was scheduled Thursday night to interview the juvenile and establish probable cause, said Sgt. Jason Walker, head of the Decatur Police Department’s juvenile investigations unit. He noted that if probable cause for arson is found, the case will likely be petitioned to the Macon County State’s Attorney’s Office and recommended for charges.
