Florida Woman Charged With Setting Fire To 10 Trash Trucks


POMPANO BEACH, Florida: A South Florida woman who torched 10 garbage trucks in front of a solid waste company where she worked last fall has been arrested, authorities said.

Saprell Frazier, 43, was taken into police custody during a traffic stop on Friday in Pompano Beach, a day after being placed under surveillance, according to a report from the Broward Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with one count of burglary with structural damage and 11 counts of second degree arson.

According to a press release, surveillance footage from the early morning hours of October 18 shows a person dressed in a garbage bag and goggles entering the Waste Pro compound in Pompano Beach, just north of Fort Lauderdale . Investigators said the intruder set the door on fire before walking around the compound and setting several trucks on fire. Before leaving, the person opened a door to the building and placed a bottle containing a clear substance on the ground, then set it on fire, officials said.

Investigators estimated that the fires caused about $ 4 million in damage.

As the building caught fire, the intruder left the scene in a black car, authorities said. Another car at the scene may have been a lookout, investigators said. Authorities are still looking for an accomplice, the sheriff’s office said.

Officials did not disclose details of how they said they identified Frazier as a suspect or what could have been the motive. At one point, authorities offered a reward of up to $ 10,000 for information leading to an arrest. It was not clear if anyone had received the money.

Frazier was being held without bail. The court records did not mention a lawyer for her.
