Three vehicles had been torched in Punta Gorda in February. It appears that a pyromaniac has sought pleasure from the flames and continues to do so. Another vehicle and a motorcycle were burnt to a tinder during another late night incident. Toledo Correspondent Paul Mahung reports on the Punta Gorda pyro.

Paul Mahung Toledo Correspondent: “Two separate cases of suspected Arson this morning has caused destruction to a vehicle and scooter in Punta Gorda. Initial reports confirm that the two fire incidents happened at about 4 AM on Fun Street in the southern section of town. The vehicle, a green Honda CRV belonging to Joseph Sapal a teacher at Julio and Cho Technical High School was destroyed with the engine and the interior of the vehicle burnt. The vehicle was parked on the side of the street just in the area where the owner resides. The Meilun scooter owned by WPC Carmela Cacho of Punta Gorda Police Formation was totally destroyed with other minor damages to the varanda area of the house where the scooter was parked. Punta Gorda Fire Service was called out to both locations and was helpful in putting out the fire which occurred separately but nearby to each other. Police in Punta Gorda have detained three person for questioning in connection with the burning of the vehicle and scooter. Paul Mahung Toledo Correspondent Love News.”

PG Pyro Petrifies PG

Last month, we told you about the 3 separate cases of arson in Punta Gorda Town where residents woke up from their beds only to find their vehicles either burning or already destroyed by fire. Police have been looking for a still-unknown, serial arsonist. But while they search he or she has struck again. Last night, 2 more residents living on same street in that southern town were targeted.

The cops told us today about the vehicle and the motorcycle they found burning early this morning on Front Street:

ACP Joseph Myvette - Head, NCIB
"This morning, sometime after 4:30 a.m., police were called to Front Street in Punta Gorda where, upon arrival in front of the home of Joseph Supal, a Honda CRV vehicle was seen engulfed in flames. The front portion was damaged. Also, further down that street, in front of the home of Carmela Cacho, police also found a Meilun brand scooter on fire, and partial damaged to the house she occupies. So far, police have one person in their custody, pending investigation, and are doing certain measures in order to determine whether or not this is the person that has set those fires."

"Do investigators suspect that it is part of the ongoing strange arsons of vehicles in PG?"

ACP Joseph Myvette
"Yes, we do believe so. So, we are putting all of those investigations together, even though they're being investigated separately, to see whether or not there is any connection."

"What can you say to assure the residents of PG that you all are trying to locate this person who has now become a sort of menace in PG?"

ACP Joseph Myvette
"Well, as I had said before, Punta Gorda Police have stepped up their preventative efforts, as well as other strategies."

We understand that the motorbike belongs to a police officer.
