Arsonist Leaves Trail Of Cards

NEW FREEDOM, Pa. (AP) – Police say a serial arsonist is leaving behind playing cards and taunting notes for investigators at the scenes of a string of car fires in central Pennsylvania.

Police in York County say a trail of playing cards have been left at five car fires since last week. The latest fires happened early Wednesday morning in Shrewsbury and New Freedom, about 40 miles south of Harrisburg near the Maryland border.

Southern Regional Police Chief James Childs says the arsonist left a taunting note on a playing card left at one of Wednesday’s fires.
