POLICE in Morecambe are appealing for information after a spate of criminal damage to cars.

Officers have released an image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the damage and are urging people to come forward if they recognise him.

There were three instances of criminal damage overnight between March 25 and 26.

The first was sometime between 6pm on March 25 and 9am on March 26, where the windscreen of a Ford Fiesta was smashed whilst parked on Thornton Road.

It is thought a brick was used to cause the damage.

The second was between 8.15pm on the 25th and 12.30am on March 26, where a Ford Mondeo which was parked on Thornton Grove had both wing mirrors damaged, the bonnet dented and the windscreen smashed by what is thought to have been a concrete block.

The third was at around 4.30am on March 26, where a BMW car parked next to a pub on Lines Street had its rear windscreen smashed with what is believed to be a pole taken from the beer garden of the pub.

PC Rebecca Rooke said, “For all three offences, the descriptions given of the potential offenders have been very similar, all of them describing a person as over 6 feet tall, of slim build with very short, fair hair and a fair complexion so we believe there is a possibility that they could be linked.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they may have any information at all that could help us to come forward and contact us.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 08451 25 35 45 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
