Police Nab Local Teens in St. Mary's Fire
Over the past two months, police custodialized four Garden City teenagers, three boys and one girl, charging the juveniles with third-degree arson in the St. Mary's fire that seriously damaged the former girls school last June, according to Fire Investigator Eugene Pietzak of the Nassau County Fire Marshal's Office. Pietzak said the 15-year-old teens were custodialized, rather than arrested, because of their age.
