Three arrests were made Sunday in connection with the arson fires at two Columbia Wal-Marts on Thursday night.
Police made the arrests after they received a tip about the suspects from the owner of the pick-up truck borrowed for use in the crime, according to a Columbia Police Department report. The owner was unaware of the crimes that were to be committed.
Police carried out a search warrant Sunday and arrested Thaddeaus Lee Harvey on suspicion of setting the two fires.
Later, another tip was given about the whereabouts of the other two suspects. Police arrested Alana DeCapua of Columbia and the third suspect, Jason Baucom of Columbia, turned himself in to the department.
All three suspects were charged with two counts of first degree arson, a Class B felony. A Class B felony in the state of Missouri is punishable with five to 15 years in prison.
The suspects were taken Monday to the Boone County Jail, where they were awaiting arraignment today, according to police.
