FBI is offering a $2,500 reward for the location and or identity of people involved in two fires set on the coast over the weekend.

On June 4th, at around 9:30 pm, Biloxi Police responded to Wal-Mart located at 2681 CT Switzer Sr. Drive in reference to an alleged Arson.

Witnesses provided information that a white female wearing a white hat, dark sweatshirt, dark pants, white athletic shoes, and dark COVID mask allegedly set fire to a box of copy paper in the electronics section of the store.  She then fled the store on foot to the west toward Walmart Lane.

The small fire was quickly extinguished by employees and no injuries were reported.  It is believed when she exited the store she entered an unknown vehicle waiting in the area.  The female appeared to be accompanied by a white male wearing a tan hat, dark T-shirt, dark pants, and dark shoes.

As we told you over the weekend, the Biloxi fire is believed to be connected to an alleged arson at a Walmart in Gulfport, as well as two in Alabama.

The investigation is ongoing.

The Biloxi Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding this incident or any other incident to please contact the Biloxi Police Department Criminal Investigation Division (228) 435-6112, Biloxi Police Department Dispatch (228) 392-0641, Biloxi Police Criminal Intelligence Unit ciu@biloxi.ms.us, Mississippi Crime Stoppers (877) 787-5898, or submit a tip online at mscoastcrimestoppers.com.
