Businessman’s Vehicle Set Ablaze

Yesterday a vehicle belonging to businessman Evan Tench was set ablaze.  Tench’s Jeep Wrangler was parked outside his business place when a staff member noticed a male person outside who was around the vehicle via their surveillance camera. At first she thought the man was urinating near the vehicle, but he moved away. About two minutes later, the guy returned with what seemed to be a gas gallon. The video footage shown to us by the owner shows the man actually lighting the truck on fire. While Tench owns the vehicle, it is used primarily by his son, Evan Tench Jr. The incident occurred sometime after two o’clock yesterday afternoon, just a couple hours after Tench Jr. came from Belmopan and parked the vehicle.  The vehicle is worth an estimated twenty five thousand dollars. Tench says he is unaware if his son has problems with anyone in the past. By the time the fire was extinguished by fire personnel, the vehicle was already destroyed.
