Investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects of an attempted arson at an adult club in Hardeeville who were caught on camera.

The two attempted to set Club Karma ablaze Oct.16 by pouring what the Jasper County Sheriff's Office believes was an accelerant along its entrance and exit, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Deputies and Jasper County Fire and Rescue responded to the club at 2653 Speedway Boulevard when two separate incidents of attempted arson were reported at 12:30 a.m. and 7:16 a.m. that day.

An employee of the club extinguished the flames while customers were inside, the release said.

"There is no doubt that these two individuals accompanied and assisted each other in the attempt of committing the act of arson by pouring what is believed to be accelarant along the entrance and exit of the club and eventually setting fire to it," the release said.

Anyone with information on the identifications of the suspects can call Detective Adam Thompson at 843-726-7779, Jasper County Dispatch at 843-726-7519 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-446-1006.
