UNIVERSITY CENTER, MI (WNEM) -
The Saginaw County sheriff says he is beefing up patrols at a local college after students at a neighboring university torched another couch and a set of dumpsters this week.
Students let out their inner pyromaniac last week when a couch was also set on fire.
Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel says after seeing video clips of burning couches set on fire by Central Michigan University students, he plans to have a larger presence at Saginaw Valley State University towards the end of the semester.
CMU students lit a couch on fire in the street over the weekend. Two dumpsters were also set alight by students. Video of those acts can be seen above.
The Saginaw News reports Federspiel will work with SVSU campus police and the Kochville Township Fire Department for the week long effort.
