The three vehicles were situated outside the dealership’s storefront.

Brunet said he didn’t recognize the man, noting the footage was too dark. He said he has no idea why someone would have done this to his business.

No one was injured, but Brunet said the three vehicles were destroyed.

RCMP Sgt. Sascha Fesenko confirmed the fire appears to be arson and police are investigating.

He said police wil examine the quality of the security footage to determine if they will need to issue any request for help from the public in finding the suspect.
