Car torched in West Bay

| 10/12/2013

(CNS): A car parked in a West Bay road was set on fire Monday night in what police believe was an act of arson. An RCIPS spokesperson said that West Bay detectives are now investigating the blaze after two suspects were seen by witnesses fleeing the scene of the burning vehicle. Police and fire services attended the scene having received a report about the  blaze in Flute Lane, off West Church Street, at about 9:25pm in which a Chrysler PT Cruiser, was destroyed. Enquiries at the location suggest that two people were seen running away at the time of the fire but police have no descriptions of the people. Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time, and saw or heard anything suspicious, is asked to contact West Bay police station on 949-3999, the RCIPS tip line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477(TIPS).

    Hope the police check with local garages – any PT Cruisers been in lately with expensive major repairs needed? It's happened before – just sayin'……

    "Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time, and saw or heard anything suspicious".  I suspect that seeing youths running away from a burning car might not be considered "suspicious" if you lived in West Bay.

    Hmmmm, car happily parked up, starts to burn, people seen running away from it and the police only 'suspect' arson?  Maybe it spontaneously combusted and scared some passers by…..

    That is the appropriate end for a PT Cruiser.

    PT Cruisers are very ugly, but this is a bit extreme.
