Detectives from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Arson and Explosives Detail responded to “Crescenta Valley Tow” located at 4456 Cloud Avenue, La Crescenta Thursday, in regards to an arson fire at the police impound yard. When detectives arrived at the location, they noticed several buildings had been completely consumed by the fire. Detectives continued to examine the scene and discovered the location was equipped with a number of video surveillance cameras.
An examination of the surveillance footage revealed at least two suspects had forcibly entered the location and intentionally set fire to the structure, which included the police impound bay utilized by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, and Glendale police department.
Additional surveillance footage from surrounding businesses captured images of a black compact sedan, believed to be a late model Toyota Yaris approaching the location just prior to the fire being discovered. A witness from the area provided a detailed description of one of the possible suspects, which was used to create a composite sketch. Detectives believe the police impound area may have been the intended target of this arson.
The investigation is still on-going.
The public is asked to contact LASD Arson and Explosives Detail Sergeant John Hanson at (323) 881-7523, with any information related to this crime.
Sergeant John Hanson will be available to answer questions regarding the case Friday, March 6, 2015, between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Arson and Explosives Detail offices located at 1060 N. Eastern Avenue, Los Angeles. No additional information regarding the case will be provided.
