UPDATE: Authorities search for man suspect in string of crimes in Caddo County
CARNEGIE, Okla. (KSWO) - The Caddo County Sheriff’s department is asking for the public’s help, in identifying a man linked to a string of crimes that happened early Wednesday in Carnegie.
The crimes include Burglary and Arson, and reportedly happened between 4:30 and 5 a.m.
Video footage from outside a home shows a man pouring a flammable liquid onto a truck, and trying to light it.
A Caddo County Sheriff’s deputy attributed the morning frost for preventing that fire from igniting, but the suspect did light fire in a ditch just to the left of the video.
Fire crews had to be dispatched to contain that fire.
The suspect is also connected to at least three other crimes that happened around the same time including burglary, larceny, and attempted burglary.
The man was caught on camera inside a separate home, going through personal property.
If you have information that could help in identifying the man, you’re asked to call Caddo County dispatch at 405-247-5700
