POLICE are hunting “mindless” vandals who slashed tyres in an overnight wrecking spree.
Numerous vehicles were targeted on Ship Street, Frodsham, some time between the hours of 11pm on Sunday and 7am on Monday.
Inspector Keith Curbishley said: “This mindless act of vandalism is a very unusual case for Frodsham and has caused significant distress, inconvenience and financial loss for those affected.
“I am very keen to identify the offender and bring them to justice and have deployed additional police officers and police community support officers to the area to pursue every possible line of enquiry to gather evidence and provide reassurance to victims and other local residents.
“If any residents have private CCTV which may assist in our enquiries or have seen something suspicious or that didn’t look quite right between those times, I would be grateful if they could make contact.”
Anyone who has any information should call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 81 of September 17.
