PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Philadelphia police released surveillance video hoping to find the man seen setting a fire inside an Olney 7-Eleven, after it was looted by vandals amid civil unrest and protests on May 31.

Video shows several people going in and out of the store, located on Champlost Avenue near Water Street, on May 31 around 10 p.m. 

Then, one man sparks a flame inside what appears to be a donut rack. The flames ripped through a snack aisle, and the people ran out of the 7-Eleven.

The convenience store is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
