Man caught with flammables in vehicles

Staff Reports

Devore- On September 3,  in the N. Cajon and Cleghorn Rd area of Devore, a 61-year-old resident of Ontario, Larry Missirilian parked his car that trespassed on railroad property.  The Union Pacific Railroad Police were contacted where the officer discovered that Missirilian was on parole and was an arson registrant.

After the officer alerted the Sheriff’s Department,  Deputy L. Sandoval from the Central Station responded to assist. They ran a vehicle search and found out that Missirilian had a 5 gallon can of gasoline, large butane torches, lighter fluid, and new cigarette lighters underneath the driver’s seat. The items seemed to be for immediate use.

Missirilian was approximately parked 10 feet away from a large dry unburned area where the Blue Cut Fire had not burned. Missirilian was arrested for arson and for violating his arson and parole terms, in which he was booked at West Valley Detention Center without further incident.
