Case # B9-071127     Occurred: 8/4/19

Around 1am on August 4th, Lincoln Police Officers happened to be driving by the Star Tran office on their way to detox when they spotted a fire at Star Tran. They stopped and found a bucket on fire near a door. They were able to pull the blazing bucket away from the door, and called Lincoln Fire and Rescue for assistance to put the fire out. Once the fire was out, LFR found three containers of lighter fluid and paper in the bucket. The Fire Investigator determined this was definitely an arson and someone’s attempt to set fire to Star Tran had ‘backfired’. Lincoln Police Department is looking for the community’s help  in identifying the vehicle and/or persons possibly involved. This vehicle shown above was caught on multiple security cameras during this time frame. The vehicle was occupied by a black male driver and a front passenger with light skin. If you have any information that could help solve this case, please call LPD at 402-441-6000 or provide an anonymous online tip here.
