Fake hate crimes: House fires staged as anti-Latino, actually carried out by property owner behind on payments, investigators say

Dave Urbanski 3 minutes

Fake hate crimes — staged to appear anti-Latino — were carried out by a Florida property owner who set fire to his homes after falling behind on payments, investigators said.

What are the details?

The Clay County Sheriff's Office said two house fires that appeared to have roots in racism actually were staged, and now the owner of the homes faces charges, the Miami Herald reported.

Investigators said George Carneiro committed arson March 13 on his two newly built homes in the same Clay Hill neighborhood after falling behind on payments, the Herald said, citing a news release.

The fires caused “substantial property damage,” officials said, according to the paper, adding that Clay Hill is about 36 miles southwest of Jacksonville.

“The investigation led to Carneiro following the discovery of a video from March 12, 2023, which captured one of Carneiro’s employees purchasing fuel tanks with cash at a Walmart,” the sheriff’s office said, according to the Herald. “This video evidence was key in establishing a connection between Carneiro and the arson. Carneiro owned the homes that were burned, and bank records revealed that he was significantly behind on his payments. ...The fires were originally staged with false evidence of a hate crime to conceal the true motive.”

A warrant allowed detectives “to geographically track” Carneiro’s whereabouts during the fires, officials said, according to the paper. Carneiro has been charged with “burning to defraud the insurer and false and fraudulent insurance claims related to arson,” the Herald said, citing the sheriff’s office.

'This is our land ... Latinos are not welcome'

While the Herald said investigators haven't disclosed specifics about the racist messages, WTLV-TV reported that handwritten signs were found that indicated opposition to Latinos moving in. A neighbor told WJAX-TV a sign in front of the house read, “This is our land ... Latinos are not welcome.”

Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook pointed to the hate-crime investigation in a March 13 Facebook post, saying, “The messages left behind indicated a potential bias based motive," the Herald reported.

Manufactured discrimination. Who knew? (actually this has been on the increase over the past seven years--false flag events/hoaxes)

I guess the only difference in this guy and the several government leaders is he manufactured his own emergency to get what he wanted...on second thought, I'm not sure why there aren't a bunch of government leaders being charged with fraud.

Back when I still had a w2 I hired a guy to work on one of my places. We were walking around discussing what all needed done and I said something jokingly about if the place burned down we could build it right.

The guy got scared and said don't even joke like that. Seems he was working on a place and it did catch fire. They kept grilling him to see if he caused it purposefully.

He knew that if he was involved in another house fire they would pin it on him.

Place didn't burn down. Probably would have been better if it had. It was my first cursed property.

Well ... never use Gasoline ... too easily detected after the fire.

We had a rash of fires in the hood during a deep recession in the 1990's. Fire dept was spread so thin you were guaranteed a full insurance claim. Then the insurance companies got smart and cancelled any policy on a vacant building. Fires stopped.
