Niles man heading to prison for burning down F.O.P. Lodge
NILES, Mich. -- A Niles man is heading to prison for burning the F.O.P. Lodge to the ground.
On Wednesday, a judge sentenced 25-year-old Gary Nellans to two and a half years in prison.
The fire happened on March 14.
Nellans and 20-year-old Kyle Kelley pleaded guilty in June.
Police said the men got drunk, took a car and crashed into a guard rail, then stole another car, torched it and rolled it into the lodge.
Last week, a judge sentenced Kelley to five years in prison.
