Arson hunt continues

POLICE have spoken to suspects in relation to a series of arson attacks near Benalla, but with no charges laid investigations are continuing.

Ten small fires were lit within 15 kilometres near the Jones Road camping ground on the road to Tatong, about 30 kilometres south-west of Benalla, on January 5.

Benalla Detective acting Sgt Shannon Murphy said “persons of interest” who were in the area at the time have been spoken to by police, but not formally interviewed.

“We will continue to investigate this and we’re not going to give up,” Sgt Murphy said.
