Man in custody, facing robbery charges for purse-snatching

A Michigan man has been charged in connection with an alleged purse-snatching incident in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Authorities report that the 28-year-old man is accused of throwing a 54-year-old woman to the ground in the parking lot of a retail establishment before sealing her purse. A bystander reportedly caught up to the man and then tackled and held him until police arrived at the scene.

Firefighter convicted of property crime after intentional blaze

A former trainee at a Michigan fire department could spend decades in custody after being convicted of intentionally setting a fire. The man, age 36, admitted to lighting the July blaze, which destroyed an apartment building and caused about two dozen residents to be displaced. He apparently ignited the fire because he wanted to make a run with the department. The man received a sentence of five to 35 years in prison for the property crime, and he has been ordered to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution to the victims whose homes he burned. He had entered a guilty plea to charges of first-degree arson at a hearing in December.

Case dismissed after witness no-show

The dismissal does come with a caveat, however. The defendant was released without prejudice, which means that new charges could be filed in the case if prosecutors so desire. It is still unclear why the witness failed to appear at the courtroom proceeding.
