Peninsula High School Fire

Pierce County Sheriff’s detectives need your help to identify the suspect responsible for an arson at a high school.  At 9:20 p.m. on Sunday September 26th, 2016, the pictured suspect lit a memorial bench on fire outside of Peninsula High School in Gig Harbor. 

The suspect walked along the front of the school building carrying a white garbage bag in one hand and a small object in the other hand; moments later surveillance video captured images of a large flash followed by the suspect running down the front steps of the school campus.  The fire destroyed a memorial bench and charred the high school building from the ground up to the second story roof.

The unidentified suspect appears to be a young white male wearing dark pants and a light colored hoodie.
