A 56-year-old resident of Akka al-Gharbia was arrested this weekend by the police, on suspicion of setting fire to the scrap yard he owns.
On Friday, a fire broke out in the scrap yard in the industrial area of Baqa Al Gharbia. About ten vehicles caught fire and were completely damaged, before the firefighters who were called to the scene were able to extinguish the fire.
A short time later, the policemen of the Baqa al-Gharbia station arrested the owner of the plot, who is suspected of having committed the act, for questioning at the police station.
This morning the police held a hearing for the owner of the lot who operated without a license and he was warned.
At the end of the investigation, the suspect was released under restrictive conditions and the investigation continues.
