BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Florida man has struck again, this time targeting garbage trucks in Broward County.
A man was seen wearing black garbage bags and goggles at the Waste Pro facility in Pompano Beach on Oct. 18, according to deputies.
Investigators said the man set fire to the gate and let himself in, then walked toward the rear of the property alongside the garbage trucks with what appeared to be a gas canister.
Video recorded at the building shows the man lighting a garbage truck on fire, then torching several more as he made his way back toward the front gate. Before leaving, the video shows him putting a clear bottle of liquid inside a building, which he then also set on fire.
“The subject is then seen leaving the compound through the gate and fleeing in a black sedan,” deputies said. “There was an additional white SUV type vehicle that was being used as a possible lookout in the area.”
Rewards totaling $10,000 is being offered for information that leads authorities to the man.
There is a reward of $3,000 from Crime Stoppers for tips that lead to an arrest. Additionally, there is a $7,000 reward being offered by Waste Pro.
