Police in Camden are searching for two suspects in connection to a series of fires last week in the city's east side that were the result of arson.

According to police, the first fire sparked on December 7 and the most recent one was two days later, on December 9.

Police say between the 7th and 9th there were four vehicle fires that occurred between 2 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. and a fire on the porch of a home on December 9 at 4:38 a.m. Investigators believe the same people are responsible for the fires.

Police say the first suspect is between 17 and 20-years of age, standing 5'7" to 5'8" tall with a thin build and a small afro style haircut. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black and white sneakers.

The second suspect is described by police as a boy between 12 and 13-years of age, standing 4'6" to 4'7" tall with a thin build and what police describe as a distinctively shaped nose. Police say the boy has a high pitch voice and was last seen wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, black pants and white sneakers.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the Camden City Police Department tip line at 856-757-7042.
