Fort Worth car arson suspects arrested

Posted: Updated:

Fort Worth police arrested five adults on Friday for a series of car fires last weekend.

The three men and two women burned nine vehicles in the Ryan Place neighborhood south of downtown early last Saturday morning.

One car was driven by a mother, 39, and had her daughter, 17, and her daughter's boyfriend inside to participate in the arsons. Police said the mother's son, 8, was also in the car during the incidents.

A second car had the two other suspects.

On Monday, arson investigators released surveillance video of two suspect vehicles leaving the neighborhood around the time of the fires.

Police said three arrests were made with information from witnesses and the last two arrests came from interrogations of the three suspects.

Investigators said the arsons caused $90,000 worth of damages to the cars.
