Eden Prairie police are investigating several cases of possible arson in city parks.

Eden Prairie Police said since June 28, officers have responded to suspicious activity potentially involving arson including two portable toilets and a trash can, which is pictured above. Officers have also responded to several incidents involving property damage caused by fireworks left inside a portable toilet, three residential mailboxes and one case of damage to a vehicle.


The total damage caused in the incidents listed is more than $7,000, according to police. The department said it's still investigating whether they are related or not.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police, and the city's Crime Prevention Fund offers reward money to those who provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of individuals who commit crimes in the community.
