A Sauk Rapids man is in the Benton County Jail after allegedly setting the business Pure Pleasure on fire Thursday afternoon.

Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says at approximately 12:30 p.m. a man walked into the business, located in the 600 block of Highway 10 South. The store's clerk told officers the man had a gas can, poured gas on the inside of the store and then lit the store on fire.

The male clerk was able to leave the business safely. St. Cloud police found 32-year-old Cody Alexander Mann a few blocks from Pure Pleasure and arrested him without incident.

Mann is being held on first degree arson charges at the Benton County Jail. The St. Cloud Fire Department was able to put out the fire and ventilated the building.

The building is considered to be a total loss with the damage estimated to cost $380,000 due to loss of furniture and inventory and because of structural damage.

The Vice President for Finance and Administration at St. Cloud State University is leaving her post much earlier than expected.

Interim president Ashish Vaidya informed the campus that Tammy McGee will be departing the school on January 5. Last month McGee announced her resignation would be effective at the end of the academic year, but that has now changed. The president says he was recently informed she is pursuing other professional opportunities.

Vaidya has made an organizational change that is effective immediately. The Finance and Administration department is now reporting directly to the president's office. He also announced a national search will begin right away for McGee's replacement and Vice President for Student Life and Development Wanda Overland will chair that search.

Just last week Vaidya accepted a new job as President of Northern Kentucky University. He will remain at SCSU through June 2018.
