Crime Stoppers: Arson in Red Bank Park
There are no pictures of our suspects this week, but the description of at least one of the guys we are seeking is pretty specific. Police believe the duo somehow set fire to at structure at Red Bank's White Oak Park. So, pay attention. You could be close to some free Crime Stoppers reward cash.
It was late on April 18th, well after White Oak Park in Red Bank had been closed for the evening. "They had two individuals that were seen running from the restroom structure that is in the park," said Chattanooga Police Officer Mark Frazer. Soon after the two took off, that structure was on fire. In the end, at least $70,000 in damages was done to the property of Red Bank taxpayers. "It's a park facility," Off. Frazer explained. "You get a lot of people that go out there, they take the kids up there, there's a nice dog park that's associated with that park, but the behavior of these two individuals has ruined that for the Red Bank community."
The good news is, we have a pretty detailed description of who we are looking for. They are two white men and one has a very distinguishing characteristic. "One was a medium-build white male with a lot of hair," Frazer said. "He was described as having a lot of big hair, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. We had another individual who is a medium-build individual with short hair wearing shorts and a T-shirt."
They fled in a black four-door vehicle. Put these clues together and get in on some Crime Stoppers reward cash.
Insurance will surely help rebuild, but this kind of crime cannot go unpunished. Off. Frazer says, it is important to know that Red Bank Police work hard to keep White Oak Park safe. "They've dealt with some criminal activity occurring in the park after dark and they're on top of it," he said, "but this was one of those situations where these guys were up to something that ended up causing $70,000 worth of damage."

Up to $1,000 is on the table for your good info. If you get voicemail, leave a number for Officer Frazer to call back. He will have questions, but he will never ask who you are.
