A Mom Sets Her Son’s Car on Fire Because It Was a Financial Burden For Him
You know a mother would do anything to help her children, even if that “anything” is a felony that she didn’t clear with him first. 53-year-old Lucia Evangelista of West Palm Beach, Florida felt bad for her son because his car was a serious financial burden on him. So when he was in Florida back in August, she saw her opportunity to help him out. She took his car, drove it to a secluded spot, doused it in gasoline, and set it on fire. Her son got back about three weeks later, and realized his car was missing. And eventually, he realized his mom was the one who’d stolen it and torched it. He did not appreciate her “help” and reported her to the cops. The police investigated, and Lucia was arrested last Wednesday for felony arson. Get the full story here.
