Hollywood Arsonist Suspect Arrested
World News Update: The arsonist responsible for a string of fires in carports, and cars that spread to some of the attached houses, was arrested. 24 year old Harry Burkhart, a German Citizen, was caught by a part-time reserve police officer. Burkhart was driving the Van with Canadian license plates, that was spotted in surveillance videos.
The cross agency effort was a unprecedented collaboration between law enforcement on local, state and national levels. The four day, multi county fire starting spree caused 3 million dollars of damage from the 55 fires.
The suspect made anti-American remarks at the time of his arrest and they suspect that his mother was having issues with being naturalized but consider it speculation if anyone says that this is the motive of the arson attacks.
The mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa said ” These crimes will not be tolerated in the city of Los Angeles.” He added that should anyone mimic one, “know that we will find you, we will arrest you, and we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.”
