Cars Damaged In Cheltenham - Appeal
Police are appealing for information in relation to damage caused to parked cars in Cheltenham.
At around 3am on Tuesday 20 February police received reports of cars having windows and wing mirrors smashed in the Glenfall Street area of Fairview.
Officers attended to find a total of nine vehicles had been damaged.
Whaddon Inspector Stephen Norris said this behaviour would not be tolerated; "We take criminal damage very seriously. It is not acceptable. A very small minority may think it is funny or even clever to damage other people's property but it is not.
We will push for the toughest penalties for those involved in these mindless acts. It causes no end of hassle and upset for the community."
Staff from Whaddon's Safer Community Team are in the area this morning. They will be speaking to local residents to find out if they saw or heard anything. They will also be handing out information leaflets.
Insp Norris said they are determined to catch those responsible; "All we need is a name, if you know who did this then tell us, you can always remain anonymous and call Crimestoppers.
You need to remember that you may not have been the victim on this occasion but you may have the information, which could prevent you or your neighbour becoming the next victim.
By working together we are in a stronger position to fight crime and bring those responsible to account."
