Man Who Burned Bowling Center & Restaurant Sentenced

The man responsible for fires at Maple Lanes and the Wishbone restaurant in Waterloo and the deadly robbery of an armored truck has been sentenced, according to the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier. 30 year old Kevin Soliveras was sentenced to 60 years behind bars and must serve at least 20 years before becoming eligible for parole. In court, Soliveras blamed his crime spree on the drugs he was on. Authorities say Soliveras was involved in a string of home and business burglaries which led to the break in and arson at Maple Lanes where he and his crew overpowered a maintenance worker and left him in the burning building. Soliveras next set fire to the Wishbone, which never reopened. Finally on March 11 of 2020 he and his crew attempted to rob an armored truck. Another robber, Bryce Miller was shot and killed by the guards.
