Lismore police are asking for public assistance to track down teenagers believed responsible for setting cars alight in Goonellabah last night.
Police said the first fire took place in Fischer Street around 6.40pm when a Holden Commodore was destroyed, and the carport damaged.
A 13-year-old boy is helping police with that investigation.
The second fire happened on Cynthia Wilson Drive around 11.30pm and four males, aged between 14 and 16, wearing hooded jumpers, were seen running from the scene.
Senior Constable Laleynya Ryan said there was also a car set alight in East Lismore yesterday.
‘At 4.15pm a car was totally destroyed on Spring Street with a second car partially damaged by the nearby flames,’ she said.
‘Fortunately no one was injured as a result of these fires however we need the help of the community to identify these people responsible.
‘Parents, if your 14 – 16 year old son was out last night in Goonellabah when he should have been at home in bed, have a think about who he was with and what he could have been doing.
‘Sometimes these kids need to face the consequences, to realise the serious harm they are causing.’
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000 or Lismore Police on 6626-0569.
