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.
