Police hunt “mindless” duo as a dozen cars are vandalised on Trowbridge street


AROUND a dozen vehicles parked in the Dursley Road area of Trowbridge were damaged yesterday and police are appealing for information.

Police received several calls shortly after 10pm on 10 July 2016 reporting two males, believed to be aged in their late teens, seen in the street pulling and kicking wing mirrors off vehicles.

They were seen to run off onto County Way.

Some of the vehicles damaged were:

A blue Peugeot 307
A silver Honda Civic
A white Peugeot Partner
A silver Audi A3
A white Skoda Citigo
A white Peugeot Expert
A red Fiat 500
A black Land Rover
A silver Vauxhall Vectra

PC Mark Hough said: “This was a completely mindless act of vandalism which has no doubt caused distress to the owners of the vehicles. Whoever is responsible has not only caused a financial impact to their victims, but may have also prevented some of them from being able to get out and about today.

“Some vehicles were scratched down the sides, while some had their wing mirrors kicked off.

“An extensive investigation is being carried out, including house-to-house enquiries. I’d like to appeal to anyone who had a vehicle parked in the area last night who believes they may have been a victim to please contact police if you have not already done so.

“I’d also like to appeal to anyone who may have information on who is responsible to contact police immediately via 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
