Police are asking people in Margate, Westgate and Birchington to check their CCTV and dashcam footage as part of an investigation into more than 30 cars being damaged in just 12 hours.
Overnight between around 7pm Yesterday (October 28) and 7am today, more than 30 vehicles were reportedly damaged, with many having windscreens and windows broken.
Vehicles were parked in streets including Epple Bay Road, Cross Road, Sea Road and Sussex Gardens in Birchington; Cuthbert Road, Roxburgh Road, Rowena Road and Sea Road in Westgate; and Tyson Avenue and Royal Esplanade in Margate.
Officers are currently treating the reports as linked while initial enquiries are ongoing.
Sergeant Steve Moat of Thanet Community Safety Unit said: “Officers are carrying out house-to-house enquiries in the areas affected and the owners of the damaged vehicles are being identified and spoken to.
“If you believe your car might have been damaged and you have not yet reported it to Kent Police, I would urge you to do so it can be investigated.
“It is not acceptable to have your property and belongings damaged in this way and we will look to identify those responsible and take action against them.
“We are appealing for residents to check their own home CCTV systems and dashcam devices installed in vehicles – particularly if you were either driving along those roads between 7pm and midnight on Monday 28 October or parked overnight.
“Also if you think you saw anyone acting suspiciously in any of the areas, call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 28-1626.’
