UPDATE: Police have released new footage of the high-vis arsonist that set fire to the Clarkson Barber Shop this week.

The ‘criminal mastermind’ is seen burning himself in the footage and police say he may have hurt his left hand.

The genius forced entry via the front of the shop on Celebration Boulevard just after 10pm on Tuesday night and was seen running from the shop onto Connolly Drive soon after.

Despite the interventions of the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, the blaze caused extensive damage.

The suspect was described as a tall, slim male wearing a ‘high-vis’ top, brown chino pants and a grey balaclava.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who can help identify the suspect should call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or report it online.
