UK Police Release Photo of Suspected Vehicle in Arson Case Wednesday Night

lex car arsonLEXINGTON, Ky. (4/17/14) ― University of Kentucky Police are asking members of the UK and Lexington communities for help in identifying a vehicle and its occupants suspected in an arson case on campus last night.

As part of the investigation, photos of the vehicle are being released. Chief Joe Monroe says UK Police are looking for a dark-colored ― possibly hunter green ― four-door Saturn station wagon and its occupants.

Around 8:50 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, the Lexington Fire Department reported that an empty cardboard beer case was placed under the bumper of a parked vehicle and started on fire in the Commonwealth Stadium parking lot. The fire was quickly extinguished and the vehicle sustained minimal damage. Two male suspects were seen leaving the scene of the incident on the dark Saturn station wagon pictured below.
