Lloyd “told deputies that he pushed the dumpster to the front of the
building, tore down signs posted to the outside of the store and lit the
contents of the dumpster on fire to ‘run the Arabs out of our country,’
” Mascara said.

An arrest report said Lloyd had been in the store a few days ago but got upset when it didn’t carry his favorite orange juice, according to WPTV News.

Lloyd also
stated that he assumed the Met Mart owner was Muslim and that it
angered him “due to what they are doing in the Middle East,” the sheriff
said.
