A series of car fires in Brooklyn, once thought to be a bias crime, is reportedly now being investigated as a possible insurance scam.
Three cars were torched back in November in the predominately Jewish neighborhood of Midwood.
Anti-Semitic graffiti was also found on a nearby van and benches.
The incident drew denouncements from Mayor Michael Bloomberg and community leaders.
The Daily News now reports police suspect the graffiti may have been part of a ruse to conceal an insurance scam.
