A man has been arrested on arson charges for allegedly setting fire to three garbage cans in Flushing, Queens last week.
Samer Shuaib, 36, of Queens, was charged with arson and criminal mischief in the incidents last week, police said.
The fires were all set between 11:49 p.m. and midnight on Wednesday, in garbage cans on the side of 69-02 Austin St., opposite 69-30 Austin St., and in front of 68-40 Austin St., police said.
No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
Police sources told CBS2 Shuaib told investigators he was intoxicated and in a bad mood at the time of the incidents. He told investigators walked past a dumpster and smelled something foul, so he decided to light it on fire, sources said.

Be on the lookout for a ninja.
He is still out there...
Sloppy reporting - not Flushing - Austin Street and Forest Hills and the third and last fire was the 112 Police Station garbage.
YAY !! NOW CATCH THE REAL GUY...
Something smelled foul and he sets it on fire?
Better yet in front of 112?
What is he the stench inspector?
What is he stupid or he thinks we are stupid?
Looking at his name sounds like an Obama import to me.
Real enough for me - A report said he had also been arrested for rape in Brooklyn.
Good work 112
Is that a Muslim name?
Maybe the ninja is the Heat Miser (a more appropriate name I think since it's the holidays)
