Car arson investigated

August 20, 2007

Albany -- A $20,000 car was torched behind Albany's Wynnsong Cinema Saturday night. Now Investigators are trying to determine if the arson was gang related.

 Someone poured alcohol inside this 2007 Honda Civic and set it on fire. It belongs to a theater employee, 22-year old Jack Walker of Cairo.

Friday Walker reported that vandals spraypainted his car. You can still see "CME" and "westside", the names of two Albany gangs, on the car's burned side and trunk.

 There have been no arrests.
