Clorox Offers Reward for Information on S.F. Toilet Arsonist

Since November 2008, nearly 30 portable toilets in the San Francisco area have been set ablaze. Because the Oakland-based company is dedicated to clean toilets and community safety, Clorox Family of Toilet Products is initiating "Operation Flush the Outhouse Arsonist" in an effort to help bring the offender to justice.

Clorox Family of Toilet Products has partnered with the Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice and the San Francisco S.A.F.E. (Safety Awareness for Everyone) network.

"S.A.F.E. is committed to educating the public on how to effectively observe and report suspicious activities to the police in San Francisco. We encourage residents and merchants to form Neighborhood Watch groups to communicate with each other and with the police," said Cindy Brandon executive director of S.A.F.E., a non-profit organization that provides crime prevention education and public safety services. "Clorox is taking important steps to let residents know that they can share information to help end this neighborhood issue."

In a full page ad in the March 24 issue of The San Francisco Examiner, Clorox Family of Toilet Products offered a $5,000 reward and a year's supply of toilet products for tips leading to the arrest of the person/persons responsible for setting portable toilets on fire in San Francisco.

Residents with any information about the arsonist are encouraged to share tips online at the Facebook group 'Flush Arsonist' or by tweeting @FlushArsonist on Twitter. Tips are also being collected on the city's arson hotline at 415.920.2933.
