Cars damaged in Morecambe crime spree

Morecambe police are appealing for information after a spate of criminal damage to cars - and have released CCTV of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the damage.

There were three instances of criminal damage overnight between the 25th and 26th of March.

The first was sometime between 6.00pm on the 25th March and 9.00am on the 26th, where the windscreen of a Ford Fiesta was smashed whilst parked on Thornton Road. It is thought a brick was used to cause the damage.

The second was between 8.15pm on the 25th and 12.30am on the 26th, where a Ford Mondeo which was parked on Thornton Grove had both wing mirrors damaged, the bonnet dented and the windscreen smashed by what is thought to have been a concrete block.

The third was at around 4.30am on the 26th March where a BMW car parked next to a pub on Lines Street has its rear windscreen smashed with what is believed to be a pole taken from the beer garden of the pub.

Police are urging people to come forward if they recognise him the man in the pictures.

“For all three offences, the descriptions given of the potential offenders have been very similar," says PC Rebecca Rooke, "all of them describing a person as over 6 feet tall, of slim build with very short, fair hair and a fair complexion so we believe there is a possibility that they could be linked.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they may have any information at all that could help us to come forward and contact us.”

• Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 08451 25 35 45 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
