MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A 19-year-old man admitted to police that he was involved with setting a cat on fire near the Crawfordsville airport.
According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Noah Riley of Crawfordsville voluntarily met with authorities Thursday evening and admitted his role in the case. He told deputies he wanted to resolve the issue after seeing several posts on social media.

A juvenile was also questioned in the case.
The reports taken during that interview will be forwarded to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office and the Montgomery County Probation Department for review.
