Police are on the hunt for arsonists who deliberately set fire to student lockers at John XXIII College in Mount Claremont leaving behind a costly damage bill estimated to be in excess of $500,000. 
Around 9.00pm on Saturday the 11th of December 2010, the fire was ignited inside one of the lockers located outside the female toilets at the rear of the school.  Intense flames quickly burnt out of control engulfing the timber roof structure and causing considerable damage to adjoining areas. 
Neighbours reported hearing voices from a group of youths loitering in the vicinity of the College around the time of the offence. 
Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously near or around the college on the night in question to come forward and assist with the investigation.  
Presently, the State Government are offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to a conviction.
