Grand Traverse County Arson Suspect Arrested

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office says they believe they have found the man who started a fire at a home.

The sheriff’s office says a home that was under construction caught fire before 2 a.m. this past Sunday in Garfield Township.

Deputies looked at surveillance video and found a man trying to break-in into another building on the property before the fire started.

The property owner recognized the man.

Deputies traced the suspect to Isabella County.

He has since been arrested for second-degree arson, home invasion and trying to break-in.

He is currently in the Grand Traverse County Jail waiting to be charged.
