Police Offer Money for Tips on Fires After NCAA Game
Police in East Lansing are hoping reward money will help bring some tips about the fires that were intentionally set after MSU lost to Duke in the NCAA Tournament last Friday.
Up to $500 will be rewarded for each tip leading to the arrest and conviction of the people involved.
"Not only do these fires endanger the community and cause destruction, they damage the reputation of our university community at a national level," said ELPD Capt. Jeff Murphy. "We hope charges brought against the individuals involved will deter others from committing these types of irresponsible offenses in the future."
