Do you recognize this man? 

The Waterloo Police Department and Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers are asking for the public's help. The Waterloo Police Department is currently investigating an alleged arson incident. 

On Sunday, Waterloo Police say a man tried setting a house on fire at 520 Elm Street. The suspect started a fire on a wooden fence surrounding the home, but it burned out shortly after. No one was injured and the home was not damaged. 

The Waterloo home, 520 Elm Street, has been deemed a chronic nuisance property by the city not once, but twice in less than two years. Police say they are called to the home all too often for multiple shootings, weapon violations, noise complaints, and suspicious activity. For every call, the residents are fined for every police officer per hour. Since the residents are the alleged victims here, Waterloo Police say they will not be fined. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Waterloo Police Department at 319-291-4340 ext 7 or Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers at 855-300-TIPS (8477). Tips may also be left at WWW.CVCRIMESTOP.COM Tips may also be sent with TipSoft or by texting the word CEDAR plus the information to CRIMES (274637). Message and data rates may apply. Text STOP to opt out at any time. Text HELP for more information.

A cash reward is available.
