The Calgary Police Service has released photos of a suspect they believe may have been responsible for a garage fire in early February.

A recent release from CPS states that a rear detached garage on the 700 block of McDougall Road NE in Bridgeland had caught fire at around 3 pm on Sunday, February 2.

The owner of the property was home at the time but was unaware of the fire until response crews arrived.

An investigation found that a suspect had been last seen in the area of Edmonton Trail and 1st Avenue NE that day, who the police believe may have been responsible for the fire.
