Arson – Arrests: C15-222704
As previously released on October 22, 2015, and March 23, 2015:
On October 21, 2015, at approximately 2:30 a.m., emergency personnel responded to a fire at a condominium complex located in the area of the 2400 block of Waverley Street.  
Upon arrival, a large apartment complex under construction was fully engulfed in flames.  Nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution while emergency crews extinguished the blaze. No one was injured as a result of the incident.  
Damage has been estimated at 3.5 million dollars and the cause is considered suspicious in nature.
The investigation has since revealed that another nearby construction site located at 100 Southview Crescent was broken into during the same time frame as the fire.  Evidence of drinking alcohol at this site, including an accelerant was located and seized by investigators. As a result, it is believed that the individuals who broke into the construction site on Southview Crescent may be associated with the fire on Waverley Street.   
Damage to the building has since been determined to be approximately $5 million dollars.
A lengthy and extensive investigation continued by members of the Arson/Major Crimes Unit and the Southview Crescent fire was definitively linked to the Waverley Street fire.
Officers used a number of investigative efforts to make arrests, including examining DNA evidence with the assistance of the Forensic Identification Section.
On November 8, 2017, three suspects were located and placed under arrest.
Jordan Charles Dooley, a 24-year-old male of Amaranth, has been charged with:

On November 8, 2017, at approximately 1:50 a.m., District 3 General Patrol members were patrolling the area of Parr Street and Pritchard Avenue when they observed a rental vehicle driving southbound.
As officers attempted to catch up to the vehicle, it came to a stop in the 700 block of Pritchard Avenue and the four occupants fled. A male suspect was located nearby wearing a ballistic-style vest and was placed under arrest.
A search of the vehicle revealed two loaded firearms:
