SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Arson gumshoes in Springfield said they bagged a convicted firebug red-footed at a 'deliberately set' apartment-house torching thanks to the GPS bracelet that showed probationer Jeremy Morin at the Central Street property just before it went up in flames.
"This was a first for us," said Lt. John Friberg, head of the Springfield Fire Department's arson squad.
