The RCMP is investigating an attempt to set fire to its Queen Charlotte detachment.
The Mounties issued a statement this weekend saying an unknown suspect was interrupted by an on-duty cell guard after he broke a window in the building.
The man, who is described as six feet and wearing a toque with a matching sweater, left behind a jug of gasoline and a marine-type flare.
The building is shared with the B.C. Ambulance Service.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Queen Charlotte Detachment at (250) 559-4421 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
