Pasco Car Arson Captured on Video, Suspect Sought [VIDEO]
Pasco Police are searching for the suspect in this video, accused of torching a stolen car Sunday morning.
Around 5AM 4-26, Firefighters were dispatched to the 400 block of South 23rd, and found this stolen 2010 Chryster Sebring ablaze. The car was reported stolen out of Richland a few hours earlier.
According to Pasco Police:
"If you watch the video carefully you can see the infamous blurry grey guy approach the open rear driver side door and lean into the back seat. It appears he lights something because moments later a fireball ignites in his face. He can be seen running out of camera view just after a massive fireball erupts, engulfing the car in flames..."
They also highly suspect due to the flare up, he will likely have singed eyebrows and hair. From the way the car 'exploded' it's possible he used gas as the igniting source.
Anyone with any information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential.
