ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — Police in Howard County say they’re investigating the arson of a portable speed camera near Glenelg High School.
Police say a newspaper deliveryman called 911 around 5 a.m. Saturday to report the fire. Fire officials arrived and found the speed camera equipment on fire. They put out the flames and no one was injured.
Arson investigators determined that the fire had been intentionally set. The cost of the damage has not been determined, but new equipment is expected to be ready for the start of school Monday.
Police are offering a reward of up to $500 for information about the fire.
