75-year-old car dealer arrested for the second time this year

An American car dealer has been arrested and charged with arson for the second time this year. He is linked to four fires.

American car dealer Bryan Hardeman, who in the 1960s co-founded Continental Automotive Group (not to be confused with German Continental Automotive), has been arrested.

It is the second time this year that the now retired car dealer, who has turned 75, has been caught in the arms of the police. And even for the same crime.

Law enforcement believes that 75-year-old Bryan Hardeman is the man behind as many as four fires and burglaries in the city of Austin in the US state of Texas.

That's what Automotive News writes.

Video surveillance from one of the locations shows, according to the police, how an elderly man enters an otherwise locked bicycle shop with a can filled with petrol.

The petrol sets the elderly man on fire, for he stands for some time and watches the flames. After that, he leaves the scene in a white Mercedes.

According to the police, the elderly man is identical to Hardeman, who started the fire on Sunday, February 25 in the morning local time.

Now the authorities believe that the 75-year-old Hardeman is to blame for three more fires by April 24 this year at the latest.

At Continental Automotive Group, one is not much in favor of dealing with the coverage of the matter. However, the company's director and Bryan Hardeman's son, Will Hardeman, says that they are still trying to separate fiction from fact. Whatever that means.
