A blue 1991 Lexus was burned at the Casa De Santa Fe Apartments Monday morning after a man broke out a back passenger window and threw an incendiary device into the car to start a fire.

A 35-year-old man told Police Officers that he saw a tan or champagne colored Chevy Tahoe stop next to the Lexus at about 4:00am. The 35-year-old man said a man got out of the Tahoe and broke the window on the Lexus and then threw a bottle with a flammable fluid inside the car to start a fire.

The 35-year-old man estimates the value of the damage to be about $2,000. Corpus Christi Police Arson Investigators are evaluating evidence to determine who may be responsible for this fire.
