2 females wanted in connection to 5th Floor Flat arson attempt

MERSEYSIDE Police have issued CCTV images of 2 women who Officers would like to speak to, as part of an investigation into incidents of attempted arson, at a residential tower block, in Bootle.  Officers are investigating a number of incidents where 2 females have entered Wren House, on St James Drive, after midnight and attempted to set the fire alarms off by waving lit pieces of paper under the detectors. In 1 incident, at 1.05am, on Tuesday, 16 May 2017, a resident on the 5th Floor heard his letterbox rattle. He went to investigate and found a pizza box on fire, on his doorstep. He saw a hooded person running to the internal stairway and a blonde female holding the door open.  The fire was contained and nobody was hurt in the incident. Officers have issued CCTV images of 2 women who they believe could help with their enquiries.

Inspector Susan Stribling said:- "The actions of the individuals involved are totally reckless and could easily have resulted in an incident with tragic consequences. We have issued CCTV images of 2 women we would like to speak to in connection with this investigation and we urge anybody who can identify them, or the women themselves, to get in touch. We cannot tolerate this kind of dangerous behaviour and we are determined to bring the culprits to justice."
