Front Street fire: ‘criminal offences’ probe

Police are investigating whether criminal offences were committed in connection with the Front Street fire from last July.

The Bermuda Police Service said it has received an official report from the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service regarding the incident.

According to a spokesman, police are now “conducting inquiries to determine if any criminal offences may have been committed”. The blaze, which took place on July 21 at 77-81 Front Street in July, destroyed the building that used to house Onion Jacks and seriously damaged surrounding businesses.

Police said in November that they were working with the fire service to determine the cause of the fire, noting that arson had not been ruled out at that stage.

Anyone with any information should contact Acting Detective Chief Inspector Dave Greenidge at the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744 or the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers hotline 800-8477.
