Cops: 3 Face Arson Charges

Three men from the Syosset and Woodbury community accused of setting fire to car, cops say.

Three men face arson charges after Nassau County Police say they lit a car on fire last week and caused over $2,000 of damage.

According to detectives, the interior of a 2012 Hyundai Elantra belonging to an unidentified 18-year-old man was set on fire March 29. The incident took place between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The car sustained over $2,000 in damages, according to police.

No one was harmed in the incident, cops said.

On Thursday, detectives say they located and arrested Jasheer Kareem, 17, of Syosset; Sulaiman Wardak, 20, of Woodbury; and Brian Weiss, 17, of Syosset, after a nearly week-long investigation and charged them with the crime.

All three are charged with third degree arson, detectives said. The three men will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.

This is completely bs that the names of these kids are put on the google for a stupid accident/mistake that happen. What do u thunk happened if it was only 2k in estimated damage. If it was anything on purpose it would have been more than that believe me! Stop these stupid news outlets for ruining kids names for bs reasons to sell papers. How are these kid going to find jobs if their names are all over google for a charge. Not even a conviction. Complete BS. I would sue the crap of these reporters.
