The Slocan Lake RCMP have released a photo of a police cruiser which was set on fire back in December.

At 2:45 a.m. on December 19, 2013 Slocan Lake RCMP responded to the report of a fire in front of the RCMP Detachment in New Denver.

Police attended to discover the front of the vehicle fully engulfed in flames.

The New Denver Fire Department attended and were able to extinguish the fire prior to it spreading to the detachment.  No injuries were sustained as a result of the fire, however the vehicle was burnt beyond repair.

The vehicle and scene were examined; evidence obtained indicates that the fire was suspicious in nature. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Slocan Lake RCMP at 250-358-2223 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
