North Vancouver RCMP arson investigators are seeking public assistance to identify a suspect they believe was involved in an arson to a local business.
On September 25, 2020, around 3:00 a.m., North Vancouver RCMP responded to a request from District of North Vancouver Fire Rescue Services for attendance to a business in the 1200 block of Welch Street in North Vancouver. At least two vehicles were on fire and a number of others were damaged by the fire.
