STRATFORD - Police are searching for a Stratford man who allegedly doused a home in gasoline and threatened to burn it down last night. Fire officials say Jason Raveis lived in the house and was upset that his parents, who recently divorced, had sold their home on Unity Drive. Police say the suspect, believed to be in his 30s, poured two gallons of gasoline on the garage floor at around 10:30 p.m. Authorities say Raveis is likely driving a Crown Victoria and is also wanted in Shelton for motor violations.
