FedEx Driver/Firefighter Accused Of Setting Fires And Putting Them Out

An Indiana firefighter who also works as a FedEx delivery truck driver has been accused of starting 15 fires in the Leavenworth area while in his truck and then responding as a firefighter to put them out.

Police arrested 27 year old Brian Stonecipher yesterday on charges including arson and criminal mischief.

While in police custody, Stonecipher admitted to investigators that he had started several fires while working as a FedEx driver. After he started the fires, Stonecipher would reportedly respond as a firefighter to put them out.

Stonecipher is linked to several fires this week as well as a fire at the Hoosier National Forest in March and two arson attempts at a vacant church in Leavenworth.

Investigators say that they were led to Stonecipher by tips from concerned citizens.

Police received say that they are still investigating and that more charges could follow.
