Information always sought in Cheyenne Arson
Information is still being sought regarding a September 2021 arson in Cheyenne which damaged a military surplus store.
Upon arrival, they saw smoke and flames billowing from the storefront. The teams were able to control the fire in a few minutes and limit the damage to the building.
The sheriff’s office was called to investigate, and September 13 posted footage from security cameras from inside the store showing what appeared to be someone smashing the window with a rock, throwing a jug of flammable liquid inside, then igniting it.
The agency also released a still image of the suspected arsonist taken by an area security camera in the hope that someone might recognize them.
But MPs still haven’t cracked the case and are again asking for the public’s help.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers Silent Witness at (307) 638-TIPS. Callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
