Posted: Updated:

WINTERSET, IA (WKOW) -- Authorities in Iowa say TV reports helped lead detectives to the suspects accused of torching one of the iconic bridges of Madison County.
    That's because they say the suspects returned to the scene of the crime and they showed up on TV, one of them was even interviewed.

"It's younger people that did something really stupid and that's what happened. I didn't know they'd be on the news and be interviewed and that's a different one," said Madison County sheriff Jason Barnes.
    The suspects, 17 and 18 years old, are both charged with arson.
