FBI searching for suspects in connection to fires at Walmart locations

The FBI is currently searching for multiple people connected to fires that occurred at Walmarts along the Gulf Coast in Mississippi and Alabama, offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to their arrest.

The fires occured on May 27, with the FBI posting tweets that showed three individuals, two men and a woman, caught on security cameras.

 

NBC News reported the fires were started at four different Walmarts last week. Three of the stores were open for business while one was closed.

“Our focus right now is the safety of our associates and customers,” Scott Pope, a spokesperson for Walmart told NBC. “We will continue to work closely with law enforcement officials to resolve this as quickly as possible.”
