Police seek public’s assistance in identifying arson series suspect

For Immediate Release: 18-Jul-2023 @ 9:16 AM
MRU #: AR23R001 

The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who caused extensive damages as a result of several arsons in the neighbourhood of Delwood in June.

The fires were lit in the city’s north end on 137 Avenue and 132 Avenue near 66 Street on Monday, June 5, 2023 and Saturday, June 10, 2023.


On June 5th, between 2 a.m. and 3:30 a.m., police responded to multiple arson incidents in Delwood, which caused a significant amount of damage to six detached garages.


On June 10th, a fire was started behind a residential garage near 128 Avenue and 72 Street. EPS investigators believe the same suspect is likely responsible for all of the fires. The suspect is described as a tall, thin male, who was wearing a pair of shoes with reflective stripes on the back during the June 5th arson.

Anyone with information about the suspect responsible for these arsons is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
