DeLand deputy’s car set on fire

Reporter: Lindsey Sablan

FOR MYERS, Fla. — A Volusia County deputy discovered his police cruiser had been deliberately set on fire while in a garage yesterday.

The officer brought the car in to get the transmission fixed, but instead found his charred cruiser with another destroyed car.

Investigators found a gas canister next to the burned cruiser.

The garage doesn’t have any surveillance footage of the incident and the owners have apologized for allowing this to happen on their watch.
