Sharp-Dressed Arsonist Set Hollywood Home on Fire: Cops

Authorities are searching for a sharp-dressed arsonist who was caught on camera setting a Hollywood home on fire.

The incident happened around 3 a.m. Monday at the home at 1124 Jefferson Street, Hollywood Police officials said.

Surveillance footage from the home showed the suspect, who was wearing a dinner jacket, walk up to the front door, set it on fire and flee. He returned a few minutes later in a dark four-door Mercedes and set the doorway on fire a second time before fleeing again.

Fire rescue and police responded to the home, which is an Airbnb and was unoccupied at the time.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
