Jobless man in Berlin burns 67 cars since June 2011, finally arrested by Police

A Jobless man in Berlin is claimed to have burnt 67 Cars since June 2011. The man is jobless and his frustration led him to take this action. He is finally under police custody. The mostly attacked are the Luxury cars including BMW, Audi, Mercedes and usually are fired by small fire lighter during night.

"This is a sensational triumph ," said Berlin state crime office (LKA) director Christian Steiof. A second police official told a media conference that the man confessed to setting 67 cars on fire since June in Germany's poorest big city.

"He wasn't motivated by politics but rather social envy ," said Oliver Stepien, a senior police official. "He said in essence: 'I've got debts, my life stinks and others with fancy cars are better off and they deserve this'." Luxury cars have been set on fire in small numbers in Berlin for many years, especially in districts that once had low rents because of their then-unattractive proximity to the Berlin Wall.
