GPS Tracked Inmate On Probation To Scene Of Arson
After a fire swept through a vacant building at 251-253-255 Central Street in Springfield Sunday, arson investigators determined the blaze in the boarded-up building had been set.
Detectives determined a man living just down the block, at 263 Central Street, had been out of prison for four months after serving a ten year sentence for arson, and as they investigated, learned that 33-year-old Jeremy Morin wore a GPS tracking device. They were able to track Morin to the building where the fire had started. He’s charged with arson and held in lieu of $150,000 bond.
