Arson Award at $17,000

Concerned citizens and businesses have rallied together in support of the Arcata Police Department and Arcata Fire District and increased to $17,000 the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for a series of trash bin fires.
The earlier reward of $3,000 has been matched by the addition of $14,000 donated by local property owners and business owners. Pledges to the fund have come from Mosier Properties, Strombeck Properties, American Property Management, Humboldt Property Management, Pacific Builders, Sundberg Insurance, California Insurance Group, and other local businesses and citizens.
Residents are encouraged to report any suspicious activity immediately, according to a press release from Arcata Fire.
Also, trash receptacles and combustible materials must be kept away from buildings and should be located in a well-lit area. Also, any fires that have occurred, even when they are discovered hours or days after the fact, may hold valuable evidence and must be reported to the Fire District.
The reward of $17,000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for these fires. Anyone with information regarding the fires is asked to contact the Arcata Fire District at 825-2000 or the Arcata Police Department at 822-2428.

    I misread the article title in the side column as “Awesome Award at $17,000.”

    Humboldt needs an Awesome Award.
