Los Angeles Arson Fires Arrest

The man police in Los Angeles believe is responsible for dozens of arson fires won’t be making a court appearance just yet.

FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown explains:

Audio clip:

A reserve volunteer police officer arrested the suspect wanted in connection with over 50 fires in Los Angeles since last week.

(Lalezary) “Thank you to the two officers who backed me up.  As soon as I put on my lights and initiated a traffic stop of the suspect vehicle, I had an LAPD vehicle behind me, ready to go.”

Shervin Lalezary is a reserve deputy with the L.A. County Sheriff.  Suspect Harry Burkhart won’t make it t0 court today, but investigators say his fire-setting is likely due to a grudge he holds with the United States.  He’s a German national whose mother was having immigration issues.
