Arson Alarm

Police are looking for a man who blew up a car and caused a huge fire during a funeral at an Auburn cemetery last month. Investigators say the suspect also shot at City of Auburn employees. On Aug. 23, police say a passenger in a car put an explosive device in a funeral attendee's car during the memorial at Mountain View Cemetery, which is owned by the City of Auburn. The explosive device created an "immense fire," which destroyed the victim's vehicle and surrounding trees, according to Auburn police. An employee says that as a group of 60 to 80 people was mourning during the funeral, someone approached one of the parked cars, throwing something inside. "They saw a guy run up to the window and break it," said the employee, who asked not to be identified for safety. read more
