Alexandria Police are investigating the intentional burning of a truck in the city’s impound lot (5249 Eisenhower Avenue) on July 30.
An Arlington County police officer witnessed the burning of a black four-seat Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck and reported seeing a person jump into a getaway vehicle. Investigators later found that the Silverado had no tags and the VIN plate on the dashboard “appeared to have been removed,” notes a search warrant affidavit.
“The pickup truck sustained heavy fire damage to the passenger compartment,” the affidavit said. “A law enforcement officer witness on scene described hearing a loud whoosh sound and described the fire as immediately engulfing the entire vehicle. The officer then saw a person near the burning vehicle get into the passenger side of another vehicle, which then left the scene at a high rate of speed.”
A suspect description is not available.
According to the city, the impound lot processes about 3,000 vehicles every year. It is located near the Van Dorn Metro station, a number of businesses and apartments.
