The male shown in the attached photo is alleged to have dropped a lit cigarette into a sharps container box resulting in the box catching on fire and causing significant smoke damage in a washroom of a local business. The incident occurred at approximately 9:50 pm on September 18th at the Co-op Gas bar located at 877 Bruce Ave. Pictures have recently been received by the investigator and are being released to the public in hopes of identifying this person.

The suspect male is described as white, mid 30's, short shaved hair and sporting a goatee. He was also noted to have many scabs on his face.
