Abbotsford, BC – On June 1 and 2, 2015 a number of small fires were deliberately set in the area of Immel Street and Old Clayburn Road.
Dumpsters, garbage cans and a wooden bench were the focal points of the seven fires in a 48-hour period. The fires were set in the early morning and early evening hours.
Despite the fact the fires were small, they all had the potential to cause greater damage because of the proximity to buildings and nearby structures.
Abbotsford Police Department Patrol Division officers and Major Crime Unit detectives began a priority investigation into the arsons which culminated in the arrest of three male youths from Abbotsford on June 3, 2015.
All three boys are in their early teens.
The Abbotsford Police Department reminds people to call in suspicious activity and to immediately report all fires.
