Public help sought in unsolved arsons from April

Two cases of arson in Lyon County have run cold.

 

A pair of hay barns were destroyed near Roads 240 and V" and Roads 230 and "Y" on April 2. Sheriff Jeff Cope says they've exhausted all potential leads in this investigation, and some public assistance is needed.

Residents are encouraged to call the Lyon County Sheriff's Office at 342-5545 or Lyon County Crime Stoppers at 342-2273 if they have any information. Tips leading to convictions could be eligible for rewards of up to $1,000.

Cope says it has been "several years" since Lyon County has seen an arson incident aimed at a structure. The Kansas Fire Marshal's Office began investigating after the fires were noticed within 50 minutes of each other.
