Senseless Damage to vehicles

Alert message sent 15/08/2019 15:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

It appears that someone has been causing damage to vehicles in the Romsey Rural area. Whilst the timeframes given vary they all appear to overlap around 0830 to 1000 hours on Sunday 11th August 2019.
Some owners have described damage to their cars consistent with a hammer being used, others have described impacts from possibly a catapult or similar. Below are the crime numbers for these incidents:

44190283699 - Lockerley
44190284499 - Lockerley
44190283868 - Awbridge Hill
44190284707 - Cavendish Close, Romsey
44190284744 - Braishfield

Some of these incidents may have taken place on days before, but all over lap with the morning of 11/08/2019.
If you have witnessed anything that may assist police with their enquiries please contact me on quoting the crime reference. If you have CCTV that covers the roadways between these locations, please check the morning of 11/08/2019 or mark the data for retention so that it can be checked and not overwritten.
This type of damage is very unusual for the area and it is very likely these matters are related and committed by the same criminals.
