The arson attack was captured from all angles by various security cameras which spotted the culprit arriving at the scene in a white Mercedes. The vehicle’s license number has been blurred out in footage released by local cops because the plates were stolen, police said in a statement.
Investigators in the city of Vaughan released the footage in an attempt to identify the perpetrator, who attempted to “blow up” a law office on January 7.
In the video, a heavily shrouded individual emerges from the vehicle and proceeds to pop the trunk filled with a host of dangerous supplies.
