Man arrested for possible involvement in car fires Zaandam

Zaandam – A 26-year-old man from Zaandam was arrested on Monday morning because he may have been involved in several car fires in the Zaanse district of Poelenburg. The police tracked down the suspect after extensive investigation.

The man has been arrested without incident. The suspect can be linked to one car fire and possibly more in Zaandam in 2023. Which these are cannot be disclosed due to the investigation. The detective is currently investigating. The man will be brought before the examining magistrate on Thursday, March 30, who will then decide whether the pre-trial detention should be extended further.

Team chief Sherwin Tjin-Asjoe: “I am very happy that we have arrested someone. Car fires cause a lot of unrest in the city. That is why we previously conducted a major neighborhood survey in Poelenburg and organized a meeting for residents together with the municipality. We cannot guarantee that it will stop, but this arrest does indicate that we are on top of it and are doing everything we can to prevent a vehicle fire. We take these types of incidents very seriously.”

Mayor Zaanstad
“Recently, this case has kept the residents busy in this district and I understand that well,” says mayor Jan Hamming van Zaanstad. “Car fires have a huge impact. On owners and on entire neighborhoods. It was therefore a priority for us to take action against this. Getting the (possible) perpetrator off the street was the most important thing. The fact that the police have now arrested someone is great news and they deserve a big compliment for this”.
