A flaming bag of human excrement left on a porch in Mead led to the arrest of three teenagers Saturday.
A security camera captured images of the teens' faces, and the homeowner's daughter identified them as two 13-year-olds and a 14-year-old.
Spokane County sheriff's Deputy Terry Liljenberg was called to the victim’s home in the 3400 block of East Moody Road about 4:15 p.m. Saturday, where he was shown video of three people approaching the front door shortly before midnight, setting something afire and running away, according to a news release.
The fire burned out, but was inches away from a combustible floor mat on the porch of the home, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The boys were told they were under arrest for second-degree reckless burning. They will be contacted by Spokane County Juvenile Court later to resolve the charges, the Sheriff's Office said.
