Halifax police release photo of suspect linked to pair of Clyde Street arsons

Halifax Regional Police have released photos of a man they believe is linked to a pair of arsons in the municipality’s downtown core earlier this month.

Police say that at 1:55 a.m. on March 12, officers, along with Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency, responded to a suspicious fire at 5455 Clyde St.

The fire was quickly extinguished, but police say a similar call occurred at 3:45 a.m. on March 14.

In both incidents, the businesses located at the address were closed and no one was injured.

Investigators have now deemed both fires to be arsons and they believe the same person is responsible for both incidents.

Police say the suspect is described as a man dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants.
