The Windsor Police Arson Unit has released another photo and more information on a female suspect they're hoping to identify as they investigate a fire late last month.

Arson investigators recently received more information from the public and obtained additional video footage of the suspect.

From a surveillance video footage, the suspect could be seen pulling a personal shopping cart with wheels and what appeared to be a red cycling box on top of the cart. 

The suspect is described as female, white, wearing a grey baseball hat with black rim, black spring jacket, grey pants, black sandals, carrying several bags and a black backpack.
