Authorities want the public’s help in solving four unrelated arsons in the past six months.

The first occurred Nov. 11 at K-42 Tattoos on East 22nd Street near South Wilmot Road, a Tucson police news release said.

Two men seen leaving possibly are connected to a white Chrysler LeBaron sedan seen in the area, police said.

On Jan. 15, an arson occurred at an empty home in the 1600 block of North Andros Lane, west of Silverbell Road.

The third arson was at a trailer in the 500 block of East Mohave Road, near East Prince Road and North First Avenue.

Neighbors told police they saw two men in dark clothing running from the trailer area. The men jumped a nearby fence and may have left in a dark-colored SUV.

The most recent arson was Feb. 24 in the Lost Barrio district.

Authorities urged anyone with information on the fires to dial 911 or 88-CRIME.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
