Maldon: Vandals cause hundreds of pounds of damage after jumping on cars
3:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Local News
Mindless vandals damaged cars during rampages across Maldon.
Between October 5 and 7, about £200 worth of damage was caused to a blue Ford Mondeo, as well as another car parked in Cherry Garden Road.
Witnesses reported seeing a group of youths jumping across the cars, throwing dustbins around and “generally being loutish”.
Similar damage was caused to a sports car in Mill Road overnight between October 12 and 13.
Both of the silver Toyota MR2’s wing mirrors were smashed off, the soft-top roof was slashed and the bonnet had been jumped on and badly dented.
Sgt Hayley Rook, of Maldon police, said officers believed the two incidents could be connected.
“It’s a bit of a weird thing to do and it’s out of character for Maldon so we aren’t ruling out a link,” she added.
