Several vehicles in Edina were targeted for arson, and authorities are offering a reward in hopes of finding whoever is responsible, city officials said Sunday.
In the early hours of July 23, police responded to an area near Parklawn Court and Parklawn Avenue and saw that someone tried to set 10 vehicles on fire.
The actions in an area dominated by multiunit housing caused “significant damage” to each vehicle, a statement from the city read.
Photographs released by police show that makeshift wicks out of either paper or cloth were slipped into gas tank openings.
The Edina Crime Prevention Fund is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charging of whoever is to blame for the vandalism.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact police at 952-826-1610.
