Florida man in garbage-bag ‘suit’ sets fire to trash trucks

He’s the trashiest criminal around.

A man covered in black garbage bags set fire to several trucks at a Florida waste management business — causing millions of dollars worth of damage, police said.

The suspect wearing a “garbage bag type suit” and goggles broke into the Pompano Beach Waste Pro facility by torching the gate at around 2:15 a.m. on Oct. 18, Broward County Sheriff’s Deputies said.

Surveillance footage released by deputies on Friday showed the filthy firebug setting several garbage trucks aflame on the property.

He can then be seen opening a door to the business and placing a clear bottle of liquid on the ground before lighting it, causing the building to catch fire.

The trash-suited arsonist fled in a black sedan, deputies said.

The blaze destroyed at least 10 trucks valued at more than $3 million total, the company told local outlets.

“We are saddened that such an irresponsible act could occur. Our drivers consider these $300,000 to $380,000 high technology trucks as their office and are proud to drive them,” Russell Mackie, Waste Pro’s regional vice president for in Southeast Florida, said in a statement.
