Campbell police and the Santa Clara County Fire Department are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a man suspected of setting fire to a parked work van early on March 30, police said today.
Video footage from a surveillance system showed the suspect approach the vehicle at 4:07 a.m. on March 30 in a parking lot at 210 Curtner Ave. in Campbell just before the van caught fire, officers said.
