Two people have pleaded guilty to stealing metal from the site of a fire that destroyed one of Michigan's oldest covered wooden bridges.
The Grand Rapids Press reports Daniel and Nicole Dines entered the pleas to charges of larceny less than $200 on Tuesday in Ionia District Court.
They were ordered to pay $875 in fines and court costs in addition to serving one day in jail.
The 33-year-old man and 31-year-old woman were arrested with about 300 pounds of iron fittings, likely to be sold for scrap.
Officials determined arson to be the cause of the July 7 fire.
An investigation is ongoing.
The bridge was built in the late 1860s.
It crossed the Flat River in Ionia County's Keene Township, about 15 miles east of Grand Rapids.
