Detectives investigating a fire that caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to a family business in Willenhall have released CCTV images of three suspects.
The footage shows three men inside the factory
Police are hoping that the public can help trace the suspects
The fire was started after at least three men broke into the J Nixon & Co factory in Waterglade Lane on Friday (7 September).
When the offenders realised there was CCTV in the factory they tried to destroy the cameras and set the video recording unit on fire. The blaze then spread to other parts of the building causing serious damage.
Det Con Roger Smith, of Walsall CID, said: "The fire has had a devastating effect on this family run business that has been trading since 1967.
"It will be several months before production will be fully restored, during which time the company may lose orders and goodwill."
He continued: "We want to hear from anyone who recognises the suspects in the images or anyone who has any information about who was responsible."
Anyone with information about the incident should call Walsall CID on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
