(INTELLIHUB) — A man by the name of Walter Stolper, 72, was arrested and charged with attempted arson and attempted murder on Thursday for planning to burn down a Miami Beach condo to “kill all the Jews” after receiving an eviction notice, police confirm.

A tip led authorities to The Pavilion where the 72-year-old madman was planning to dump gas down the drain of the 400 unit complex and ignite it after locking up the building’s fire hoses in an effort to thwart firefighters from extinguishing the blaze, as reported by ABC 10 local news.

More than 100 gallons of gas stored in over 36 different containers was recovered by authorities which police say Stopler had stowed away in both the condo’s garbage dumpster and a storage room along with a decent amount of potassium nitrate and sulfur which are commonly used to make improvised explosive devices.

The deranged lunatic stated in the affidavit that he “bought the gas to make a small BBQ.”
