GRONINGEN – The police in Groningen have received at least 30 tips over the past few days on the incidents of arson in the Groningen village of 't Zandt. The police reported this on Tuesday.

The pyromaniac has set 16 fires in the village over the past several months.

A police spokesperson stressed that not all the tips are valuable. He said some were from mediums who think they might have information on the individual responsible. Many of the tips were also related to matters that the police already knew about, he added.

Police questioned a total of 150 people on the streets of the village on Monday. They decided to question passer-bys because they suspect that the pyromaniac may be scouting out locations during the day before setting fire to them at night.

Thirty detectives are working on the case, supported by 10 experts from Amsterdam and elsewhere who are keeping an eye on the investigation to make sure nothing is overlooked.
