Seeking public assistance to identify arson suspects
We are looking for the public’s help to identify suspects who are believed to be responsible for a vehicle fire that occurred in northeast Calgary last month.
On Thursday, May 11, 2023, at approximately 8 p.m., three men parked a 2015 black Jeep Cherokee in the alley behind a residence located in the 500 block of 10 Avenue N.E. The men quickly exited the vehicle, lit it on fire and then fled the scene. Based on review of CCTV footage, the suspects ran east in the alley, north on Fifth Street N.E., and then east on 10 Avenue N.E.
The Calgary Fire Department attended the scene and extinguished the fire, which caused significant damage to the vehicle and a nearby fence.
