Police want your help with the latest brothel fire

By johnboy - 2 January 2012 12

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a fire that was deliberately lit at The Gentlemen’s Club in Mitchell overnight.

ACT Fire & Rescue were called to the business premises in Grimwade St, Mitchell, around 10.47pm and after having quickly extinguished the blaze and conducted early investigations, then called police.

A crime scene has been established at the location and Criminal Investigations detectives are conducting enquiries. Initial forensic studies are underway.

No-one was inside the premises when the fire started.

Police are urging anyone who may have seen or heard suspicious behaviour near the club or in the immediate vicinity of Grimwade St, Mitchell, between the hours of 6pm to 11pm last night (Monday, January 1) to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.

Arseness!? Arseness!!!!????

That may well be the greatest neologism of the 21st century to this time. “Arseness:One who sets fire to a brothel”.

I can now

So I guess the inference is that a competitor might burn down a brothel that was likely to take a a large slice of the Street Nats cash. Not such a far fetched idea when you consider that a week’s work can bring more money than a whole years worth. Paying an arseness fee would make a good investment and return a greater slice of the pie.

Would that be pork pie then?

im solely blaming this one of casper the ghost!
if no one was in the premises when the fire started how can it be deliberitly lit?
did they use there pychic powers to start the fire?
the door wasent broken down becuase the brofel nextdoor tryed to ring the bell no one was there!
so yeh someone was burning the place down and made sure they locked the door on the way out!
if thats the case shouldnt they be looking at the owner who had access to the keys?
the whole story doesnt make sense and i probley dont ether but o well LOL

Smoking cones and typing isn’t always the best idea. On the positive side, it appears you have some good quality gear 🙂

Casper was the friendliest ghost in town – i doubt it was him.

So, a knocking shop was completely deserted at 10:47pm. And someone set fire to it.

Interesting news, that.
