OFFICERS are renewing their appeal for information after a number of vehicles were damaged in Weymouth.

The incident happened sometime between 6pm on Wednesday, April 9 and 6.50am on Thursday, April 10 in Glen Avenue.

The offenders forced entry into a garage and stole a tin of white spray paint. It is believed that this paint was then used to damage four vehicles and a front door along Glen Avenue.

PC William Taylor of Weymouth police said: “This appears to be a random attack and has caused a great deal of distress to the victims.

“On the same night sometime between 8pm and 9.30am, a theft from an insecure vehicle on Prince of Wales Road also occurred and sunglasses were stolen. It is thought that this crime might be linked. “I urge any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible.

“All calls will be treated with the strictest confidence.

“I would like also to remind owners to make sure that their vehicles are secure and valuable items are not left inside.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101 quoting crime number C:14:D:14262.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
