Police reports

  • A 31-year-old man is suspected of lighting a bag on fire and leaving it outside the door of another man who lived in his apartment complex early Friday morning. The 50-year-old victim was awakened by smoke coming in his front door at the Berkeley Flats apartments, 1123 Ind., and reported a fire at 3:32 a.m. Friday. Police said the victim and suspect have feuded in the past. The suspect, who reportedly was intoxicated when firefighters arrived, denied setting the fire, which caused about $100 damage to the door and carpet. Police spokeswoman Sgt. Susan Hadl said fire investigators retrieved items that may be evidence from the suspect's apartment. No one was arrested in the incident on Friday.
