Police follow footprints to man accused in arsonMarch 4, 2019
By The Associated Press
PORTLAND — Northeastern Indiana police say they followed footprints in the snow to find a Michigan man who's accused of setting a house fire.
Twenty-five-year-old Cody John Conkright of Grand Rapids, Michigan, is charged with arson in the Feb. 20 fire. He's being held on a $50,000 bond.
Police arrested Conkright after following his footprints from a fire-damaged vacant house in Portland, about 75 miles (120 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis.
Online records don't list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
The Star Press reports that on the day of the fire Conkright's behavior in a local restaurant prompted a stalking complaint from a customer.
Michigan Department of Correction records show Conkright was convicted of criminal sexual conduct and assault with a dangerous weapon in Michigan's Newaygo County, in 2013.
