Lower Township Police Searching for Juveniles Possibly Involved with a Car Fire
Lower Township Police are searching for information -- and possibly two or three juveniles -- in connection to a car that was set on fire early Thursday morning.
According to a press release, officers responded to the first block of East Delaware Parkway around 1:30 Thursday morning for the report of a car fire. Once extinguished, an investigation revealed that a Molotov cocktail was thrown into the car, which destroyed the vehicle. The vehicle owners told detectives they heard a noise out front, looked outside, and saw their car in flames. A witness told police two or three juveniles were seen fleeing the area just as the fire started, running East on Delaware Parkway.
A Turkey Hill bottle containing gasoline was recovered from inside the vehicle, which is being processed as evidence.
If you have information about this incident, you are urged to contact the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office at (609) 465-1168.
