As police step up their hunt for a suspected serial firebug, the community has been asked to watch out for suspicious vehicle movements or a changed behaviour.DARREN LINTON March 1, 2014 5:21am
Shepparton police Crime Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Mick Sheahan said 10 suspicious fires in a concentrated area between Mooroopna and Tatura since February 3 were being investigated. Det Sgt Sheahan said while the fires had been in close proximity to each other, the public attention might cause a shift in location.
‘‘People need to still be vigilant in other areas of vehicles parked or moving slowly on the side of the road,’’ he said.
‘‘We are still interested in suspicious vehicles seen in the areas around where the fires have been lit in recent weeks.’’
While so far the fires had been relatively small and Country Fire Authority crews had quickly contained them, police were concerned any fire had the potential to escalate.
Det Sgt Sheahan also urged people to report unusual or changed behaviour of people close to them.
‘‘If people have noticed a change in behaviour of someone close to them, we would like to know,’ he said. ‘‘It may be something that has set someone off in the past couple of months.’’
