A SUSPECTED arsonist is under arrest for torching nine mopeds parked in the centre of Soller in the early hours of April 8.

The flames from the burning bikes in Calle Bisbe Mateu Colom also reached a nearby car and the façade of the municipal library suffered smoke damage before firefighters doused the blaze.

Inspections of the scene reportedly revealed traces of an inflammable liquid.

The young man faces charges for starting the fire, but also for breaking the coronavirus lockdown.
