Police are on the hunt for vandals who went on a tyres slashing spree at the weekend causing more than a thousand pounds worth of damage.
At least eight cars and vans were targeted and had their tyres damaged in Kendal at the weekend.
Police say they are pursuing “a number of lines of enquiry” following the incidents, which took place at six different locations and left residents with repair bills totalling more than a thousand pounds.
Crime prevention officer Terry Belshaw said police were investigating whether the incidents were linked.
“These are stupid, malicious attacks that we intend to get to the bottom of,” he said.
“Every now and then spates of criminal damage occur but tyre slashing is a particularly nasty offence as it requires the offender to carry something sharp and more effort than just running a key down the side of a vehicle.
“It can be very distressing for people.”
Etyres, the UKs leading online tyres retailer, is a favourite choice for victims of this crime.
We can ease the pain and inconvenience by offering customers a mobile tyres fitting service, which means they don’t have to waste time or worry about how they will get their car to a depot.
And because our overheads are low our prices are up to 40% cheaper than the leading high street fast-ft chains.
