Middle Township Police Searching For Arsonist
Early Thursday morning, Middle Township police and firefighters responded to two fire calls on one street and are now looking for an arsonist.
Around 3AM Thursday morning, police received a 911 call reporting a fire in the 1200 block of St. Andrews Drive in Swainton. A second 911 call reporting a fire in the 1400 block of St. Andrews Drive came in while the Cape May Court House Fire Company and patrol units were responding to the area.
A preliminary investigation indicates one or more suspects put gasoline in plastic containers around the perimeter of the two buildings on the 1200 and 1400 blocks of St. Andrews Drive.
The Middle Township Police Department and Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office are taking this incident very seriously and ask anyone with information to call the Middle Township Police Department at 465-8700.
