Vancouver – Charges have been approved following a Vancouver Police investigation into a series of fires that were deliberately set earlier this week.

Four arsons were lit in the downtown core during the overnight hours between March 27 and 28. A VPD investigation was initiated immediately and evidence revealed the same suspect was responsible for all four fires.

Curtis Rabochenko, 51, has been charged with four counts of arson causing damage to property.

He has been remanded until his next court appearance.
