UCSC Arson Arrest-11/19/18-1222-PMD
A UC Santa Cruz undergraduate student has been arrested on one charge of felony arson. 18 year old Ryan Recalde was taken into custody after he allegedly burned a poster at a multicultural college dorm’s third floor last week. Recalde is also believed to be responsible for several other similar incidents. Investigators say the arson falls just short of hate crime statutes. Recalde is being held in lieu of 25 thousand dollars bail.
