The Victoria Police Department is looking for information on a suspect linked to two cases of arson in early September, and hopes a newly-released video will help.
The VicPD believes the man is in connection with two fires which happened two hours apart of each other on Sept. 17.
The first was in a garbage bin in the 900-block of Yates st. just after 1:38 a.m. The fire was extinguished and no one was hurt.
The second fire happened around 3:15 a.m. in a garbage dumpster in the 1100-block of Grant Street. This fire was also extinguished without injury.
Police have released a video of the suspect, who is described as Caucasian and standing six feet tall with a slim, lanky build. The suspect was wearing black pants and a black jacket over a greyish blue hoodie and toque.
Anyone with information about these incidents can call the VidPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654. To report what anonymously you can call the Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
