Police release security video in LA car fires case

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Police in Los Angeles are distributing DVDs featuring surveillance video of a man wanted for questioning in connection with a rash of suspicious car fires in the city.

Officer Sara Faden said Sunday the person of interest is a white male between 20 and 30 years old with a receding hairline and a shoulder-length ponytail. The man was seen on video Saturday after emerging on foot from inside an underground parking structure that was the scene of a car fire.

Detectives estimated the man, who was wearing a bulky jacket, is between 5'6" and 6'1" tall.

Faden says investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying the man on the video.

The outbreak of dozens of arson fires has left a trail of smoldering debris in Hollywood, West Hollywood, North Hollywood and the Fairfax district of Los Angeles since Thursday
