Terrace RCMP seeking arsonists

POLICE ARE asking for the public's help to find the suspects involved in an attempted arson with a Molotov cocktail in Copper Mountain during the Christmas break.

Thornhill Fire Department called Terrace RCMP for assistance shortly after midnight Dec. 21 after someone tossed a beer bottle with a rag soaked in accellerant at the east side of Copper Mountain School on Kirkaldy St., said Terrace RCMP.

Smoke set off the fire alarm, bringing firefighters to the scene and damage to the school was minimal, said police.

Police dog Rook tracked three persons to Core and Skinner St. and witnesses in the area saw three men dressed in black running from police in the area of Hagen St., said police.

If you have any information about this crime, contact the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.terracecrimestoppers.ca or by texting TERRACE plus your message to 274637 (CRIMES).

If your information leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
