Police in Vancouver have released video footage they hope will lead them to a suspect in a series of arsons and shootings that began last year.
Police believe the assaults on people and property are linked to each other and are connected to the Justice Institute and Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC).
Since April 2011, 14 people have been the target of deliberately set fires and gunshots fired at their homes and vehicles around the Lower Mainland.
All were either current or former staff or students of the institute. Others were loosely connected to the school.
No one has been injured in any of the incidents.
In December, the RCMP announced it was investigating a former ICBC claims adjuster for accessing the information of 65 people with links to the school.
On Friday, police released a security video captured during an arson on Jan. 13 at around 2:40 a.m.
A man can be seen pouring liquid from a jerry can on the door of a house.
"The video is quite good quality, so we are hopeful someone will recognize this male suspect through the combination of slim build, jacket, ball cap, duffel bag and light-coloured belt," Sgt Peter Thiessen said.
Investigators have identified several other suspects in the investigation, which they said remains a high priority.
Earlier this month police said they'd received an e-mail from someone who claimed to have more information, but that person has not come forward.
Police believe one suspect in an early Nov. arson may have sustained "unexplained burns" and ask anyone who might know more to contact them.
The Justice Institute of B.C. specializes in training police, sheriffs, firefighters, paramedics and other emergency personnel.
