Fleet Tyre Slasher on the Prowl

VEHICLES HAVE THEIR TYRES SLASHED IN RUBBER BASED RAMPAGE

A mini crimewave has hit Fleet with police appealing for witnesses after 24 vehicles had their tyres slashed over a matter of days.

The cars had all been parked overnight on driveways or the road outside homes between 12th – 16th August, when an unidentified suspect/suspects damaged the tyres using a ‘sharp implement’.

One resident did in fact capture a culprit on CCTV, sharing video that shows a single person in a light coloured jacket, dark jeans/trousers and light footwear. They are seen approaching the vehicle, kneeling down to inflict the damage and then calmly walking off again.

CAN YOU HELP?

Police appeal for anyone who can help and request…

“If you have any information about these crimes or if you have CCTV that might have captured the suspects, please get in touch by calling 101 and quoting reference 44190288791.

“Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

LEFT IN THE DARK

It has also been noted that there is a increase in anti-social behaviour in the local area, with some residents commenting that the decision to turn off street lighting overnight, certainly hasn’t helped the situation. As police appeal for anyone with CCTV footage, it can only be hoped that crimes either happen before the switch off, or that they have their own light sources.
