Abel Contreras, a 44-year-old homeless man, was arrested for lighting two fires and is suspected of lighting most of the suspicious fires around Pasco this summer. When asked why he did it he gave an unbelievable answer.

Contreras says prosecution for previous crimes got him evicted and resulted in his homelessness. Therefore, he blames police for his homelessness! 

Since June 55 suspicious fires have been reported and many are believed to be his work. He went around lighting fires, damaging residents and businesses because he was mad at the police!

Surveillance footage finally led to his arrest. Police are not sure how many of the 55 he is connected to.
