Posted April 9, 2015

An image from a security camera captures a man that Fayetteville police and ATF agents believe used Molotov cocktails to set fire to two tattoo parlors.

— The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Thursday announced a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for Molotov cocktail fires at two Fayetteville tattoo parlors.

Tattoo Studio, at 5129 Raeford Road, was fire bombed on Nov. 23 and again on Feb. 7, authorities said. A Molotov cocktail also was used to start a Feb. 2 fire at Signatured Soulz Tattoo, at 505 Cross Creek Mall Drive, they said.

Security cameras have captured images of men throwing or placing Molotov cocktails at each business.

Anyone who can identify either man or provide information about the crimes is asked to call ATF toll-free at 1-888-283-3473.
