Officers in Dorchester are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a spate of criminal damage to cars in the town.

The five separate incidents happened between 1am and 2.30am on Saturday 29 June 2013 on Princes Street, West Walks Road, Louise Road, and two along Maud Road.

In each individual case the windows of the cars were smashed, and it appears whoever is responsible has used some sort of weapon to do so.

Police Constable Michael Brown, of the Dorchester Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to contact Dorset Police in confidence.

“These thoughtless acts have taken place along a number of quiet residential streets in the early hours of the morning, but there is a possibility that there may be witnesses who saw someone acting suspiciously in the area either prior to, or during the times all five incidents took place.

“This criminal damage has no doubt caused the victims great inconvenience and expense, and I am keen to find those responsible.

“Anyone with information is urged to call the non-emergency number 101 in confidence, and I would also encourage anyone who may find damage to their vehicle to report it to Dorset Police, quoting incident log 29:170.”

Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
