Hunt on for car vandals
Published: 10 Apr 2012 13:300 comments
From March 12 to March 31 police have recorded 141 incidents of vehicles being targeted by the hooligans with residents in Windsor, Slough and Gerrards Cross all among those suffering.
Examples of the yellow paint brigade have been sited as far away as Newbury, Milton Keynes and Great Missenden.
PC Samantha Hall, from Thames Valley Police, said: "The nature of the offences has led us to believe that all of these incidents are connected.
"I believe that someone out there must be able to provide us with some information about who is responsible for this criminal damage, and I would urge them to come forward and speak to us as soon as possible."
Anyone with information can contact PC Hall via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Line on 101. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org
