Vandalism spree in Merstham
4:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
Detectives are hunting vandals after an overnight spate of criminal damage to vehicles in Merstham.
Officers from East Surrey CID are appealing for information after the damage spree overnight between Tuesday (October 15) and Wednesday (October 16).
The attacks were carried out on vehicles parked along Albury Road. A Surrey Police spokeswoman said the damage was caused to the vehicles' windscreens by a projectile.
She said: “Eight incidents have been reported to police, but officers are urging anyone else who may have been a victim, to contact them with information, as this information could prove vital to the investigation.”
Investigating officer PC Gemma Taylor, said: "This type of criminal damage is completely mindless and has left a lot of people out of pocket as a result.
"I would urge anyone who saw either the offence take place, or anything suspicious in this area around the time of the offence, to contact police with information.”
Local officers from the Reigate and Banstead Safer Neighbourhood Team are making enquiries in the local area as part of the investigation.
Anyone with information should contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference RB/13/8475.
Alternatively, people can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
