Phoenix Homeless Man Actually Paid for Gasoline. Then Set House on Fire

Frutoso Gallegos
One of the City of Phoenix's countless homeless men apparently doesn't have enough money for a house -- but he had enough money to buy gasoline so he could set one on fire.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, 62-year-old Frutoso Gallegos went to a gas station in the area of 912 East El Caminito Street in Phoenix yesterday afternoon.

He was seen on surveillance footage pumping gas into a gas can, paying for it, and leaving.

Shortly after leaving the gas station, Gallegos went to a house about two blocks away, where a woman in the area watched him use the gasoline, glass jars, and some rags to make three fire bombs.

According to the witness, Gallegos broke two windows in the house and threw two of the bombs inside.

Gallegos tried to throw the third bomb into the house but was "startled" by one of the occupants and dropped it -- and some of his homeless-guy gear, including a black wig -- on the ground before running off.

Police responded to the scene and found the house on fire. They also found Gallegos' wig, one-third of a gallon of gasoline in a plastic jug, some newspapers, and a bag of food items laying on the ground near the burning house.

Gallegos was seen leaving the scene and was arrested. He was identified in a photo lineup by the witness as the man who threw the bombs into the house.

As a result of the fire, an elderly woman, who was in the house at the time, needed to be taken to a hospital and treated for smoke-inhalation injuries.

It's unclear what prompted Gallegos to set the house on fire -- or why he had a black wig. He's been charged with one count of arson of an occupied structure.

This is off topic from the other comments but you touch film izle upon it in your post… Concerning E and J, have you considered individual therapy for them? It is really

important that they are able to process, in an emotionally healthy way, these huge life bombs that have been thrown their way. I’m glad to hear that E has a cousin he

can relate to but the great thing with therapists is that they can be completely impartial. hd film izle E and J would be

able to say anything to a therapist, things they might not want to admit to anyone within the family. Addiction is a family disease, so as great as it is to have

familial support, it is equally filmini izle important to have outside, unbiased support as well. E and J may want to check out Alateen as well, where they can meet others their

age who have been through the same thing.


He probably started the fire so he would be taken off the street...

Should of bought some wine
