More than a year later, the Boonville Police Department and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation are still looking for leads on who committed arson at Boonville’s Dollar General on July 10, 2011.
The two agencies have been investigating the arson case, which caused irreparable damage, and are now offering a $10,000 reward for any one with knowledge that leads to an arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the arson.
“We had an arson investigators on the scene the night of the fire that gave several facts that made us know that it was in fact intentionally set,” said Boonville Police Chief Gregory Gibson. “It was during the night and someone did break into the building and set the fire.”
Although the Dollar General store was demolished and rebuilt and held its official reopening on March 10, the investigation of the 2011 arson is still very much alive.
The Boonville Police Department and N.C. State Bureau of Investigation are now setting out fliers to continue to raise awareness in hopes that someone will come forward with information with the incentive of a $10,000 reward.
“We’re still in the middle of an active investigation, we’re not ready to close the case, we’re not ready to give up, we’re still actively looking at what leads come in,” Gibson said.
If you have any information regarding this arson, please contact Yadkin County Crimestoppers at (336) 679-2366. All information will remain confidential.
“Regardless of how small or insignificant you think your information may seem, it may be the piece of the puzzle we need,” Gibson said.
