Delta Police are hoping three graffiti tags taken from the scene of a suspicious fire at Heath Traditional Elementary last week will help them identify those responsible for the blaze.

Firefighters were called to the school, located near 113 Street on 72 Avenue in North Delta, at about 2 a.m. April 14.

While the flames were extinguished quickly, the school sustained significant damage and was closed to students for two days.

Delta Police have now released a trio of images of graffiti in hopes that parents, teachers or friends may recognize it or know who may be responsible for the vandalism and/or the arson.

Anyone with information is asked to call the DPD Major Crimes Section at 604-946-4411, or to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
