Police make arrest in disgruntled employee car fire

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Edwin Y has been arrested for the crime of intentional damage after he was charged with events that happened November 6. The Attorney General reports that on November 6, Edwin Y likely sprayed gasoline on a vehicle and set it on fire, which caused the car to burn in its entirety.

The owner of the vehicle, his former employer, reported the incident through 911, which allowed the capture of Edwin Y for which he has been made available to the Public Ministry. The defendant said that he caused the damage because the owner of the vehicle was his employer and recently fired him from his job.

At the end of the hearing, the judge imposed as a precautionary measure the unofficial preventive detention for the detainee.
