Man arrested after setting fire at Public Safety Building

At approximately 1:30 pm on Oct. 6, 2018 a man walked into the Delta Police Public Safety Building in North Delta.

He proceeded to start a fire on the couches in the lobby, which caused the building sprinkler to go off. The building was evacuated.

“Fortunately there were no injuries. The man was quickly arrested and is currently in custody,” says Cris Leykauf, public affairs coordinator for Delta Police.

The lobby of the building sustained significant smoke, fire and water damage. It is now closed to the general public at this time, although police officers and staff remain at work there.

Should the public require non-emergency police services over the long weekend they are asked to call 604-946-4411, or attend Delta Police headquarters in Ladner at 4455 Clarence Taylor Crescent.
