The LAPD arrested a man they suspect helped set fire to at least 55 cars in the Los Angeles area in the past three days. Since then no new arsons have been reported, the police say, so they're confident they've got their man. The crazy arson spree has caused at least $2 million in damage to cars and surrounding property. A sheriff's deputy arrested someone who he thought looked like a photograph of a suspect, though the department won't confirm his identity or whether they think he acted alone.
