Friendlyjordies: NSW police appeal for information over suspected arson attack on YouTuber’s home

Detectives are hoping CCTV footage could spark a breakthrough in their investigation into a suspected arson attack on the home of YouTube personality Jordan Shanks-Markovina.

Emergency services responded to a fire at a Bondi home a year ago, when the property and an adjoining house were significantly damaged.

New South Wales police said no one was at the home, belonging to Shanks-Markovina, also known as Friendlyjordies, at the time of the fire.

The incident appeared to be linked to another fire reported at the property days earlier, police said.

Footage released on Wednesday shows two cars investigators believe could be linked to the 23 November 2022 blaze.

One car is a black 2018 Mercedes C200, which police believe had been stolen and was bearing cloned plates.

The other is a silver 2013 Ford Falcon with one working fog light and reflective stickers under the number plate.

The cars were near the crime scene around the time of the fires after travelling to the eastern suburbs from the Campbelltown area, about 50km away.

Police believe four or more men, with potential links to organised crime, were in the cars at the time.

Investigators have asked anyone with information about the cars or the identities of their owners and occupants at the time to come forward.
