Suspected arsonists caught on camera in Coquitlam

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

They don’t know it, but three men suspected of setting fire to a private cabin in Coquitlam were caught on video.

The property along Widgeon Creek was destroyed the evening of July 7th.

RCMP Constable Chris Nordlund says it’s believed the culprits spent time at a nearby campground, so others in the area over the July 4th weekend, may recognize them.

“We’re also looking for two witnesses who alerted staff at Grant Narrows to the fire after observing the individuals depart the area. It is believed the suspects departed Widgeon Creek on a small aluminum vessel with a small outboard engine onboard.”

Nordlund says the area is only accessible by boat and this was likely a crime of opportunity.
