Bluffton police seek suspect in dealer arson


Police in Bluffton, S.C., are searching for a man who may have started fires at a handful of businesses, including H-D sales and rental dealer USA Rider.

Joseph Samuel Clements Jr., 23, of Savannah, Ga., is wanted on suspicion of arson and burglary at a furniture store and is a person of interest in a similar incident at USA Rider last Thursday.

Bluffton Police responded to an activated alarm at about 3 a.m. at the motorcycle shop and found the rear of the business in flames, according to a press release.

Bluffton Township Fire District quickly snuffed out the fire, but the business suffered heat and smoke damage.
