Torching of two Northern California sheriff's cars called terrorism

December 2, 2011 | 11:47 am

Two Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department patrol cars were torched in what authorities are calling an act of terrorism.

The FBI has been called in to investigate the incident. Someone tried to torch a total of 10 cars overnight Thursday in Sonora, including two sheriff's patrol cars.

Three cars appear to be a total loss.

There are no suspects, but authorities said the fires were intentionally set and they believe law enforcement was specifically targeted.
