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.
