Two teenage boys have been arrested during an investigation into reports of criminal damage to cars in Thanet and Faversham.
Kent Police received around 50 reports of criminal damage caused to the windscreens and windows of parked vehicles in Margate, Westgate-on-Sea, Birchington and Faversham overnight between around 7pm on Monday, October 28 into the early hours of the following morning.
Two boys from Faversham, aged 16 and 15, were arrested on November 1 and 2 on suspicion of criminal damage.
They have both been released on bail until November 22 while enquiries continue.
Sergeant Steve Moat, from the Thanet Community Safety Unit, said: ‘We would like to thank all those who have responded to our appeal and come forward with information, evidence or CCTV footage to help our enquiries into the damage.
“Due to the similarity in reports, we are currently looking into the possibility that the damage to cars in Thanet could be linked with the incidents in Faversham.
“It has been reported the damage was mostly carried out using projectiles such as stones.
“If anyone saw the damage being carried out, or their own car was damaged during that evening and they haven’t reported it to us yet, I would urge them to call Kent Police as soon as possible on 01843 222289 quoting 28-1626.”
