We're SO glad this is all over with!
Yesterday, a "person of interest" who was believed to be responsible for 53 arson fires in L.A. and $2 million worth of damage was detained.
Now, we've learned that the "person of interest" is in fact the person of guilt, and he's been identified as a 24-year-old man from Germany named Harry Burkhart.
He was booked in jail yesterday afternoon, and we're hearing that he's being held without bail.
We've ALSO learned that Burkhart has a personal vendetta against America, and a U.S. State Department source identified him as a man who "unleashed an anti-American tirade in U.S. immigration court recently…in reaction to his mother's reported deportation."
Hopefully this man will be locked up for a LOOOOONG time! We would NOT feel comfortable knowing he's out on the streets!
