Brooklyn, NY - Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro today announced the arrest by FDNY Fire Marshals of a Brooklyn man in connection with three vehicle fires over a span of three months from March to May 2019.

Jonathan Perez, 28, is alleged to have ignited three vehicles in Brooklyn. Fire Marshals responded to each of the scenes and began an extensive investigation; conducting interviews with witnesses, canvassing the areas and searching for surveillance video that may have captured the fire and suspect.

Pursuant to the investigation, members of the FDNY Fire Marshals Auto Fraud Squad along with NYPD Detectives apprehended Perez, 28, inside his home without incident. He is charged with three counts of Arson 3rd, Reckless Endangerment and Criminal Mischief. The case is being prosecuted by the Kings County District Attorney’s Office.

“Arson is a dangerous criminal act that shows no regard for the safety and well-being of FDNY members and the people and property we are sworn to protect,” said Commissioner Nigro. “Thanks to the excellent investigative work by our Fire Marshals in the Auto Fraud Squad, the suspect wanted for this senseless act has been apprehended.”
