Detectives Looking For Parking Lot Arsonist

NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio - An arsonist is on the loose, and investigators in North Olmsted are asking for your help to track that person down, 19/43 News reported.

Firefighters said that someone started a fire that destroyed 11 cars and damaged 22 more in the parking lot of the Delemere Arms Apartments in North Olmsted early Sunday morning. The vehicles, including one owned by Delemere resident Ken Morris, are burned beyond recognition.

"I thought I was dreaming," Morris said. "I saw a policeman, and he said everybody had to get out"

"Hopefully, they'll find the people who did this, so they'll have to pay for what they did" Delemere resident Christi Switzer said.

All of the cars were parked under a carport.

The apartment building itself also suffered some minor damage, including melted siding and cracked windows.

If you have any information on the crime, you are encouraged to call the North Olmsted Police Department.
