Do you recognize these persons if interest in Yarmouth Arson??


April 29, 2020, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia… Yarmouth Town RCMP is asking for the public’s help to identify two persons of interest in relation to an arson and mischief.

Just after 1 a.m. on April 25, Yarmouth Town RCMP responded to a truck fire at a wharf on Water St. in Yarmouth. The investigation revealed that the truck was deliberately set on fire and completely destroyed. The next day, police were made aware of a nearby fishing boat from the same wharf that washed up on nearby rocks causing damage to the vessel. It appears as the boat’s lines to the wharf were disconnected around the same time as the arson.

Two people were captured on video surveillance in the area. One person is wearing a blue jacket, grey pants and carrying a black backpack. The second person is wearing a beige jacket and orange camouflage pants.

The Yarmouth Town RCMP are asking the public that if they have any information on the incidents or the two persons of interest to contact them at 902-742-8777.
