A NIGHT-TIME rash of criminal activity in one Weymouth street left residents fuming.

Vandals left a trail of destruction in Canberra Road, Littlemoor, when they ripped the wing mirrors off five cars in a row and another man woke up to find his motorbike had been stolen and set on fire nearby.

The incidents come a week after five homes were all burgled on the estate in the same night.

Colin Harmer, who is registered disabled, woke up to find the wing mirror on his Nissan Note hanging off only days after his back window had been smashed in.

He said: “This has now happened twice in a week after the back window was all shattered and it costs me £75 in insurance excess.

“The police knocked on the door and told me and I said ‘no not again’ and he told me there had been more.

Jim White, 53, had the wing mirror ripped off of his blue Ford Mondeo.

He said: “The wing mirror was left on the floor and it really did spoil my day.

“We’ve lived here for four years and it wasn’t very pleasant when we moved here but it’s got a lot better.

“It’s been a very pleasant place to live until the last few days and I love it here.

“I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.”

The cars were damaged between midnight and 9.30am on Thursday, April 14.

Anyone who can help Dorset Police should call 01305 222222.

• A BAKER who uses his motorbike to get to work had his scooter stolen and torched.

Ashley Hallett woke up on the same morning that five neighbours had their cars damaged in Canberra Road in Littlemoor, Weymouth, to find his scooter was gone.

The 24-year-old went off in search across the estate but police found it had been burned and destroyed in an area off of Louviers Road – minutes away from his house.

He said: “It was my means of getting to work so I’ll be getting my old bicycle out now.”

• THE vandalism in Canberra Road comes less than a week after five burglaries in Littlemoor on the same weekend with the offenders getting in through unlocked back and conservatory doors.

From the five raids, four happened when residents were at home.
