The Roseville Police Department is investigating the attempted arson of a local store that took place in the early morning hours of July 4.
Security camera footage shows an unknown male suspect climbing atop the roof of the Coin Cove, a coin and stamp store located in the 25000 block of Gratiot Avenue, with a gallon of gasoline. The suspect poured the gasoline on the roof of the store then lit it on fire before fleeing the scene.
Due to an overnight rainfall, the roof was wet, and despite the use of the accelerant, the fire did not grow out of control and only caused minimal damage to the roof of the building.
Images of the suspect captured on security cameras show the man wearing a mask, a gray hoodie tied tight around his face, gloves and tan tactical pants.
It’s not known why the suspect wished to set the business on fire but an in effort to uncover more information about the incident, the store’s owner is offering a $3,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Roseville Police Detective’s Bureau at (586) 447-4583.
