12-Year-Old Arrested for Starting Garage on Fire

Milwaukee Police arrested a 12-year-old male for starting a garage on fire. The suspect entered the victim’s garage in the 6900 block of W. Herbert Avenue at approximately 2:35 pm on July 7. He poured an accelerant on items in the garage and then used a lighter to ignite the fire. The fire was so intense that it melted the siding on a house next to the garage. The male ran away from the scene but was located and arrested by police in the 7300 block of W. Sheridan Avenue. The suspect confessed to the crime and told officers he set the garage on fire because he was mad at the owner. The case will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.
