Sometimes things fall right into place for law enforcement like when this Florida Man left a special piece of evidence at the scene of the crime.
It happened late in the evening in Palm Harbor. Andy Danilla went over to a neighbor’s house looking for a person who he believed owed him money. The man who answered the door said the person who Danilla was looking for wasn’t home. Danilla didn’t like that answer and continued to yell and knock for a few minutes.
This is where the story takes a turn and a burn. Moments later the man who answered the door saw his pickup truck on fire in the driveway. Pinellas County Sheriff’s detectives reviewed the victim’s surveillance footage and found something interesting. Danilla can be seen approaching the house with a red gas can in his hand. He was then seen running away after the fire started. Detectives found a unique piece of evidence that would tie Danilla to the crime. They found the gas can that he was carrying on the back of the truck with “Andy” written on it!
Danilla admitted it was his gas can and was charged with arson.
