Someone destroys 5 state vehicles, boat

Dec 2, 2010 8:29:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say an arsonist destroyed five state vehicles and a boat outside Anderson that could cost taxpayers $150,000.

Multiple media outlets report authorities think someone cut through a locked fence at a Department of Health and Environmental Control parking lot and broke into the vehicles before setting them on fire.

Authorities responded to the fire around 5 a.m. Saturday.

DHEC spokesman Thom Berry says replacing the two sedans, two pickups, a station wagon and boat will cost between $100,000 and $150,000. He says the state had only liability insurance on the high-mileage, older vehicles, and the policies don't cover arson.
