CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — One of two suspects linked to a suspicious fire that closed a Walmart in Cascade this weekend has been arrested, according to police.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Department said one of the suspects came in Saturday night to turn himself into authorities after deputies released surveillance pictures of the two suspects.

Aaron James Pagan, 28, was arrested on a felony arson charge and is currently lodged at the Kent County Jail.

Pagan has a criminal record dating back to 2004 with numerous arrests and three felony convictions, including two for unarmed robbery and one for drugs.

The Walmart, located on 28th St SE, will remain closed until damages can be repaired, which will likely take a few days, according to officials with Walmart.

Authorities reached out to the public to help identify two men seen in the store around 1:30 Saturday morning when the fire started. The two were seen driving a white Chevrolet Avalanche pickup truck.

No one was injured in the fire.
