Man Sought by Cornwall Ontario Police After Setting Fire Alarm SEPT 25, 2016



The Cornwall Community Police Service is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the male suspect in the attached photograph for activating a false alarm of fire.

On Tuesday July 26, 2016, at approximately 6:00 p.m. a white male, between 60 and 70 years of age, wearing a blue hat, grey shirt and shorts entered into the main doors of a business in the area of Ninth Street East and Sydney Street.  He proceeded to pull the fire alarm pull station, sending it into alarm mode, when there was no fire or emergency in progress.  This resulted in the Fire Department and Police Service responding to the scene in an urgent manner.  The male left the area in a blue/grey vehicle that resembled a Chevrolet Impala.  The last 3 numbers on the licence plate were reported to be 953.  He left the area southbound on Pitt Street.

    Oddly enough CFN has been the only local media outlet to run this….

  3. Jamie most of the so called fires here in Ottawa are exactly like what that man did making false alarms. One fire department just went by as I was reading this article. This type of thing here in Ottawa is caused by mostly young people but it is kind of shocking to see an older person doing this kind of thing.
