Appeal following fire at car dealership



We are appealing for information following a fire at a car dealership in Stoke-on-Trent.

We went to the Mercedes dealership on Cobridge Road, Cobridge, just after 3am yesterday morning (Sunday 7 January).

We found four cars well-alight and the fire was extinguished by fire crews.

Shortly after, the fire was deemed to be caused deliberately.

A male suspect was seen entering the dealership at 2.35am on Sunday (7 January) and poured petrol over one of the cars, using a petrol can, before setting it alight with the fire having spread to three other cars.

He was then seen leaving the scene just before 2.40am on an electric scooter in the direction of Waterloo Road.

The suspect was wearing a dark-coloured hoody and jogging bottoms as well as a glove.

If you have any information or dashcam footage that could help us with our inquiries, call 101, quoting incident of 064 of 7 January, or message us using Live Chat on our website. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
