UK Police Make Arrests in Campus Arson Case

Published: Apr 18, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 18, 2014) ― University of Kentucky Police have arrested three suspects in the car fire at Commonwealth Stadium parking lot on campus Wednesday night. Jennings Kleeman, 18, was arrested today, and last night police arrested Cullen Gallaher, 18, and Ian Baughman, 19.   All are UK students and are charged with 2nd degree arson, a felony.

  

Around 8:50 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, the Lexington Fire Department reported that an empty cardboard beer case was placed under the bumper of a parked vehicle and started on fire in the Commonwealth Stadium parking lot.  The fire was quickly extinguished and the vehicle sustained minimal damage.  Male suspects were seen leaving the scene of the incident in a dark Saturn station wagon. 

 

The arrests were made following photos and video of the suspects' vehicle being  released to the public yesterday.

 

"Our new camera system that provides extensive coverage of campus was again instrumental in assisting us with the identification of suspects in solving this crime quickly," Monroe said.

 

The high-tech system provides more than 400 cameras across campus, and it was used to quickly solve an attempted robbery on South Limestone last month and proved essential in monitoring South Limestone and other areas during recent NCAA Tournament game celebrations.

 

If anyone has any other information regarding this incident, please contact UK Police at 859-257-8573.
