Across the country, there’s been a series of mysterious incidents plaguing power stations, and around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday another incident took place at a solar power plant in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Metro Police responded to a call at a solar plant on U.S. 93 north of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

When police arrived, they found a car smoldering in a generator pit, according to media reports from 8News Now in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Metro Police later identified the suspect as 34-year-old Mohammad Mesmarian.

He is accused of ramming a car through a fence and setting the vehicle on fire, according to police.

8News Now reports that the car Mesmarian used is registered out of Idaho, according to documents found.

Mesmarian drove the car through the fence on Tuesday afternoon originally after employees had left for the day, according to police.

It wasn’t until Wednesday at 12 a.m. that video evidence reportedly shows Mesmarian setting the car on fire, media reports said.

The suspect sat in a chair for about 15 minutes watching the car burn before he fled the scene, according to reports.

Detectives believe Memarian used gasoline from his car to splash on the wires at the transformer, according to documents obtained by the 8 News Now Investigators team.

Officers located Mesmarian at a campground in Boulder Beach at Lake Mead, a 30-mile drive from Las Vegas.

It is not clear how the suspect traveled to Boulder City from Las Vegas.

Two laptops and an iPhone were found in the car linked to Mesmarian.

He faces charges of committing an act of terrorism, arson, destroying or injuring real or personal property of another, and escape by a felony prisoner.

An employee at the plant spoke with 8 News Now and said the fire caused major damage, and the plant is not producing electricity due to the incident.

“Following an incident at the Mega Solar Array facility, on-site personnel immediately notified authorities and shut down the plant’s operations as a precaution in accordance with industry-standard safety protocols,” an Invenergy spokesperson said, “No one was injured, and we are currently restoring the facility’s full operations.”

Power stations across the country have been vandalized, such as a substation in Washington state that left many people on Christmas Day without power.

The Dallas Express contacted the Las Vegas Metro Police for additional information and comment but did not hear back at the time of publication.

Why would the GREENIES try to destroy a solar power plant? That comment wasn’t really thought out much. SMFH

I thought Abbott was doing such a good job of stopping them? I guess not!

Why would you blame Abbott when the border security is a federal function? Abbott is doing all he can against the tide. Border patrol is overwhelmed by MILLIONS. Perhaps you should watch something other than CNN.

Lock him up and throw away the key. With the video evidence, no trial is necessary.

This is what happens when you have an open border and allow people in. Millions of illegals have entered America in the past two years without any process of vetting. We will certainly experience more attacks in the future.

There’s no mystery. These are terrorist attacks. A lead up to something bigger. Tests, as it were. The Biden administration is carefully NOT calling them terrorist attacks. The perpetrators of these attacks came across our southern border illegally, from Islamic countries that hate us and want us dead. They were aided by the Sinaloa Cartel.

The largest customer base for the cartels is U.S. Americans. So, killing their customer base would be like Walmart blowing up and/or burning down every trailer park in the country.
