Teens arrested after criminal damage on Portland
4:49pm Thursday 4th October 2012 in News
FOUR teenagers have been arrested following a spate of alleged criminal damage on Portland.
Two 15-year-olds, a 14-year-old boy and another boy aged 13 are helping police with their enquiries after windows and a vehicle were damaged at premises in Weston Street, Reap Lane, the Straits and Bumpers Lane in the early hours of Saturday.
Police Sergeant Sam Goom, of Portland Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “There has been an increase in reports of criminal damage on Portland over recent weeks and the Portland Safer Neighbourhood Team has been working hard with the community to address their concerns.
“We have arrested four teenage boys on suspicion of causing the damage and they are currently on police bail.
“It is believed that this most recent occurrence may be linked to alleged criminal damage that occurred earlier in September – where several vehicles along Park Road were damaged including the community minibus.
“The Portland Safer Neighbourhood Team continues to investigate all of these incidents and is keen to speak to witnesses or anyone who saw anything suspicious.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101.
