Mystery night mischiefs and fires in Bowmanville

Durham Police investigators are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying potential suspects related to a number of overnight mischiefs and fires in central Bowmanville.

On December 8 at about 12:30 am, East Division officers assisted Clarington Fire with a suspicious fire in the area of Liberty Street North and Concession Street. An exterior building had been set on fire which spread to two residential buildings, causing approximately $100,000 in damages. The Fire Marshal attended the scene and there were no reports of injuries, said a police statement.

Since early October, members of East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau have received reports of more than a dozen incidents relating to overnight mischiefs and fires in central Bowmanville. The majority of these incidents took place within the boundaries of Concession Street East, Liberty Street North, King Street East and Lambs Road and between the hours of 10 pm and 4 am. In all cases there has been property damage, and no reported injuries.

Investigators are looking at the possibility of these cases being connected and the fires being deliberately set. Investigators are appealing to the public to be cognizant of suspicious activity within the neighbourhood and to report to police. If you believe that you have witnessed or have video surveillance of such activity in and around the area dating back to early October, notify police.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call D/Cst. Hilliard of East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1657.
