Los Angeles Police Department detectives found materials that could have been used to set fires inside the minivan of a "person of interest" detained for questioning in the recent string of L.A. arson fires, law enforcement sources told The Times.
The sources did not reveal details but said detectives confiscated evidence and materials that suggest the individual had the ability to ignite some or all of the blazes.
Little is known about the man. Sources said the the minivan had Canadian license plates but that detectives believe the man might originally be from Germany.

Ah, ist der Fire-vegnugen.
(For Meatloaf Segal)...
Really? Betcha his name’s Abdul, either that or he has a cousin named Abdul.
Still betting on an OWS connection.....
Fairfax & Sunset... that’s just a couple blocks from Chateau Marmont.
Photo of the suspect in custody here. Looks like the typical lefist OWS POS muslim sympathizer Obama groupie.
islamism, or its facilitation....
The leftist groups behind OWS are international. Could be a German leftist-anarchist, who decided to join the party.
And some of these guys just travel around for the fun and excitement. I was at a New Year’s party with some of my progressive in-laws, and one of them (age 29) had already mentioned that he had been at Occupy Burlington for a number of nights, and also went down to Occupy NYC for a long weekend. Anyway, he now mentioned that he had been at Occupy Oakland when they shut down the port for a day.
He said, as I would have expected, that the Longshoremen were happy to cooperate. Since they didn’t have time for a formal strike vote, it wasn’t an official strike, but the union leaders told them they were welcome to observe the picket lines informally.
What was he doing there? Just excited to be helping out, in his crazy way. What good did he think he was accomplishing? Something about blocking imports, so the local farmers could do better, I think. And why did he spend the money to fly all the way to Oakland? I suppose it was kind of like a holiday vacation.
Eh, the Red Brigades were a pretty long time ago.
As a guess I’d go with radical Eco-terrorism, especially the focus on cars.
Like the ELF ?
I betting on ecoterrorism.
Then hit + twice in the upper left of the map. Then click their down arrow 3 times. You should be able to see Sunset and Fairfax where he was arrested. Lot of fires around there.
You can navigate around with the arrows. There is a big cluster of fires to the north, too. Maybe he has 2 HQ locations or a friend at one.
If he set any of the fires I hope he never sees day light again. From Germany? WTF, OWS is nothing but a front for international Marxism. Germany will not be happy about this.
Need more information. Is he amish??
