POMPEO BEACH, Fla. (WPLG/CNN/Meredith) -- Nine cars at a Florida dealership have gone up in flames, and police are looking for the person caught on camera setting them on fire.

In a surveillance video, a person in a grey hoodie can be seen walking up to the cars on the lot of O&D Dealership in Pompeo Beach, Florida. The person uses box cutters to break through the gates and then pours gasoline on the vehicles.

Minutes later, they light up in the yard.

The sister of the dealership owner spoke with Local 10 News.

"Whoever did this, I'm telling you, you've really really hit hard,” she said. “And like again karma."

She said she doesn’t know who would do this, or why they would.

Nine vehicles are now completely burnt up.

As BSO continues to investigate, the family now fears they will have to pay out of pocket for possibly all of the damage done.

"A few of the cars were brand new and a few were just completed and ready to go,” the sister said. “So I'm almost sure its going to hit the pocket hard. It takes a heartless person to do something like this. A really heartless person."

The state fire marshal is investigating the alleged arson case. No suspects have yet been identified.
