ALEXANDRIA POLICE INCIDENTS
TUESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2004
BURGLARY - ARSON:
1 Oronoco St. 08-10/ 3:12 a.m. Police were called to the waterfront warehouse to assist the fire department with a fire in progress. Initial investigation reveals that someone forced open a door to gain entry to the warehouse. Once inside, the suspect ransacked the office, removed two forklifts and set fire to rolls of newsprint. Damage from the fire was minimized due to the fire suppression and alarm systems. One forklift was driven from the warehouse, through the loading bay and dumped into the river. It has not been recovered, and another forklift is also missing. The Alexandria Fire Marshal and Alexandria police continue to investigate.
