Local authorities have arrested and charged two individuals in connection with a series of fires and vandalized vehicles in recent weeks.
The identities of the two Idaho Springs residents, one a juvenile, have not yet been released. They are each being charged with 22 counts of criminal mischief and four counts of arson, a felony.
One arson charge is connected to a 4-acre blaze at the end of March. Unidentified individuals had been seen on a hiking trail in that area just before the fire.
