It's happened again. A car stripped, torched and dumped in the Brightmoor community.

Neighborhood camera crusader Jonathan Pommerville says the car appears to be a mustang, possibly vintage.  He and other neighbors are tired of people using their neighborhood as a dumping ground. 

"I'm really sick of it." said Pommerville.

Neighbors say the car was in a trailer and dumped in the overnight hours on Hazleton Street near Midland. Both the car and trailer caught fire, however the flames didn't reach the plate on the trailer. 

With the help of the Secretary of State's office, 7 Action News Reporter was able to get the name of the trailer's registered owner.  His name John with an address in Belleville.
