ISABELLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A man has been arrested on arson charges after he lit a dumpster on fire.

On July 29, 2016 around 5:40 a.m. an officer with the Isabella County Sheriff’s Office spoke with a 27-year-old man near the Deerfield Apartment Complex.

Three minutes later, the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department was called to the 3000 block of East Deerfield Road for a dumpster fire.

Officers looked at security footage the next day and found the same man officers spoke with was the one lighting the dumpster on fire.

The man later confessed in a follow up interview.

He was booked into the Isabella County Jail on pending arson charges as well as probation violation.

His name has not yet been released.
