Pasadena police are trying to figure out who stole a Lexus IS250 from an Arcadia mall, and how it ended up on fire at a Pasadena intersection last night.

Police got a call at 8:45 p.m. about a car on fire at Del Monte Street and Lincoln Avenue, City News Service reports. It turned out to be the same car stolen from the Westfield Santa Anita mall earlier in the day.

Police are looking for a "person of interest" they describe as Hispanic, 20-30 years old, and around 5 feet 11 inches tall. He was seen leaving the fire wearing a hoodie and jeans.

If you set the car on fire, or know someone who did, Pasadena police would like to talk to you. You can reach them at 626-744-4241.
