Investigation ongoing into fire at electorate office

Police are renewing their call for public information as part of the ongoing investigation into fire damage at an electorate office on Best Street in Devonport early Sunday morning.

“As can be seen from the CCTV vision released by police today, it is highly possible that the person who lit the fire at the electorate office suffered some burns or singeing to their skin, hair or clothing,” said Inspector Kim Steven.

“I would ask that if anyone is aware of a person with recent injuries consistent with this to contact us, it may be the person has provided a story of an exploding BBQ or similar but we would still be keen to talk to them to eliminate them from our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
