Officers from the Mercia Safer Neighbourhood Team are appealing for witnesses after a number of cars were vandalised overnight in South Derbyshire villages.
The damage has been caused to at least 15 cars in Aston, Weston, Findern, Willington and Repton overnight between Tuesday, July 26 and this morning, Wednesday, July 27.
PCSO Kerry Waite from the team said: "This is very unusual as it seems that someone has been driving around the area overnight deliberately smashing windows on a number of cars. More »
"There does not seem to be any motive other than vandalism as there has been nothing stolen from the vehicles and they are not linked in any way.
"We think that the offenders have been driving from village to village causing the damage between 2am and 3.30am as victims have reported hearing their car alarms going off and then hearing another vehicle driving off between these times.
"This is obviously upsetting for the victims who have woken up this morning to find their vehicles damaged and faced with the expense and inconvenience of repairing them. We would urge anyone who knows anything about the incidents to contact us."
One resident of Willington Road, Findern woke up to find the windscreen of her Vauxhall Meriva damaged. She said: "It is a great inconvenience for no reason at all. Sheer mindlessness for their own enjoyment."
Witnesses or anyone with information should call, quoting reference 1600021039. Alternatively, send a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
