Orono Police Offer $4K Reward for Arson Information
Orono Police are now offering a $4,000 reward to help figure out who set three squad cars on fire. Two were destroyed and a third was damaged.
Authorities arrived at the scene around 3 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14, following a report of an explosion. The cars were sitting in a parking lot at the police station on Kelley Parkway in Long Lake.
No one was hurt in the fires, but the total loss is estimated at $100,000. The cars were on fire for about 10 minutes.
The police department hasn’t ruled out arson. They say they found some evidence nearby that could be considered a fire accelerant.
