Arsonist disabled security camera before torching Habitat for Humanity dumpster, cops say

A man seen lurking behind the Habitat for Humanity store in Fort Lauderdale is suspected of setting a dumpster fire in the loading dock area, police said.

The smoky blaze was reported about 12:12 a.m. on March 18 behind the business at 505 East Broward Blvd.

Police and Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded but the large fire caused only minor damage to the building and no injuries to anyone, officials said.

The day before, an unknown man was seen on surveillance video walking around the dumpster, repeatedly. He eventually climbed up and disabled the security camera that was pointed at the loading dock, police said.
