Minneapolis’s CBS affiliate reports:
A Brooklyn Center man faces federal charges after he lit his own camper on fire to make it look like a politically-motivated crime, and then allegedly filed several fraudulent insurance claims.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Denis Vladmirovich Molla, 29, is charged with two counts of wire fraud in connection with the fire that took place on September 23, 2020.
Molla reported to police that someone set fire to his camper “because it had a Trump 2020 flag displayed on it,” and spray painted the Antifa symbol, “BLM” and “Biden 2020” on his garage door. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Molla actually lit the fire and defaced the garage himself.

Molla reportedly filed an insurance claim for $300,000, receiving $61,000. He also took in $17,000 via GoFundMe. The clip below and screenshot above are both from 2020.
This bogus antifa arson story recalls the 2008 one where a McCain supporter claimed a crazed Obama fan carved a B in her face — but was undone when it became clear she carved it herself, backwards, using a mirror. https://t.co/E8hwDKruAI
