Vulgar graffiti found on house destroyed by suspicious fire

A Gold Coast home has been destroyed by a suspicious fire this morning while the homeowner was at work.

Police were called to Belah Street in Ashmore at 8am today, after reports a house was ablaze.

The 46-year-old resident of the house, identified only as John, was not home when it’s believed someone forced entry to his ute, reversed it against the house and set it on fire.

“The phone lit up, kept saying, ‘your house is in fire and there’s explosions’ and you come around the corner and see this,” John told 9News.

The uninsured house was badly damaged and the car was destroyed.

Police say thieves stole a number of items, including a boat and a moped, before lighting the fire.

The words “this is for f—ing my wife” were graffitied on an exterior wall of the home.

“Yeah there’s foul play somewhere along here, I just dunno yet,” John said.

“I had a hard 2018.”

Police are investigating.

Anyone with information, CCTV or dashcam footage is urged to contact Policelink on 131 444.
