Police arrested the currently unnamed 16-year-old Arroyo Grande High School student and Caleb Joseph Pelletier, 18, of Creston on suspicion of conspiracy, arson, burglary and possession of stolen property a few weeks after the torching of the Boy Scout Troop 414 building.
On Thursday, the Arroyo Grande teen was found unfit for juvenile court. He is scheduled to be arraigned in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court on Monday, after which officials will release his name.
Both teens have been in custody since their May arrests. The 16-year-old has been held in the SLO County Juvenile Services Center. Following his arraignment, he is slated to be transferred to SLO County Jail where Pelletier is currently being held.
