Longmont police are seeking a man in connection to an arson that caused more than $5,000 in damage at Central Longmont Presbyterian Church, according to a news release from Deputy Chief Jeff Satur.
Longmont fire crews responded to the church, 402 Kimbark St., at about 5:40 a.m. Sunday, according to the release. No one was inside the church when crews arrived.
Detectives and fire investigators later determined a man broke the window of a door into the church and used an accelerant to set the fire, the release states. The release also includes pictures from surveillance video of a light-skinned man with short dark hair wearing an orange hooded jacket or sweatshirt.
Satur’s release said the church’s sprinklers and the department’s response time saved the church from more severe damage.
Anyone who knows the suspect’s name or whereabouts should contact the Longmont Police at 303-651-8501.
