Seniors Arrested in Roseville High School Arson



At 1:20 a.m. this morning, Roseville Fire Department  and Roseville Police Department personnel responded to a fire in Roseville High School's football field.  Fire crews quickly extinguished the fire, but it had completely destroyed the stage set up on the field for Roseville High's graduation tomorrow night, and caused extensive damage to the turf.  The fire was quickly determined to be arson.  The school district 's preliminary estimate to repair the damage is  $100,000. 

The Roseville Police Department youth service officer assigned to Roseville High School and school offiicials investigated, and identified two Roseville High School students as suspects. 

Both are seniors who would have graduated with their class tomorrow night. Roy Jordan Loya, age 18, and a 17-year-old male have been arrested on suspicion of arson, felony vandalism, and conspiracy.  

School and district officials have made a phenomenal effort to temporarily repair the damage and rent a replacement stage so that graduation can go on as planned tomorrow night.

Loya's booking photo will be released later after the booking process is complete.
