Officials Investigate Link in Cape Cod Arsons

December 14, 2010

Officials say they are investigating similarities between arsons in two Cape Cod towns where someone left messages condemning wealthy people.

Barnstable police Det. John York says someone spray-painted “(expletive) the rich” on a fence at a house where incendiary devices were left on Dec. 2.

The devices burned out before fully setting the home on fire.

York says a similar message was left at the scene of a Nov. 24 fire that engulfed an unoccupied home under construction in Sandwich.

No injuries were reported in either incident. Officials are encouraging anyone with information to call a 24-hour confidential state arson hotline at 800-682-9229.
