Surrey RCMP want to identify 2 people in the arson of two vehicles

Surrey RCMP is investigating the arson of two vehicles parked in a Fraser Heights driveway and seeking witnesses.

On March 11, 2022, at 2:40 a.m., Surrey RCMP received a request from Surrey Fire Service to assist with a vehicle fire in the driveway of a residence located in the 17700-block of 101 Avenue. Police attended and determined that two vehicles were damaged by fire, which was extinguished by firefighters.

The Surrey RCMP Arson Coordinator and the Surrey Fire Inspector were both engaged early on in the investigation. Based on an inspection it was determined that the vehicles were intentionally lit on fire. Although this incident appears to be targeted, a motive has not yet been determined and the vehicle owners are not known to police.

Investigators canvassed the immediate area for witnesses and video. Video located showed two suspects arriving on foot and departing northbound through a footpath toward 101A Avenue. It appeared that one of the suspects inadvertently lit themselves on fire, so they may have sustained some injuries.

We understand that members of the community have questions and concerns about an arson occurring in their neighborhood, says Surrey RCMP Media relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn Our investigators are actively working to collect evidence that would enable them to answer those questions. We are asking that any members of the community, who have any information, witnessed anything suspicious, or may have video surveillance from the area to contact police.
