Stow Sentry Papers Set on Fire

The following information was supplied by the Stow Police Department.

A 41-year-old woman living at the 4700 block of Garnet Circle called when she saw a fire outside from her upstairs window June 29.

The woman called police after someone set two newspapers on fire on her front porch, rang the doorbell and ran away around 11:25 p.m. 

The suspects appeared to have kicked the burning newspapers off the front porch toward the driveway before the Stow Fire Department arrived, police said.

The fire captain seized the newspapers, according to the report. 

Criminal mischief, in this situation, is a first degree misdemeanor.

I hope the whereabouts of all local Patch employees where accounted for?

It wasn't me! I mean who hasn't set fire to a newspaper before though? It's great kindling!

And some of them, say the New York Times, are only good for that purpose.

A comment was deleted for violating our terms of use.

So, let me get this straight: using the term "nutjob" in general terms is a TOS violation? You've got to be kidding me. Well, then, I'm going to start holding Patch to those generalities in all of people's responses that vaguely offer an opinion about anyone (that IS the can of worms that has now been opened).
