An arrest has been made by officers investigating damage caused to ambulances in Thanet.
A 47-year-old man from Ramsgate was arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage to vehicles on two occasions. He was taken into custody this morning (April 1).
Kent Police is continuing to appeal for information after nine tyres were found to be damaged on six ambulances between 8pm on Saturday, March 21 and 7am the following day. Officers are also investigating a report that further damage was caused to three tyres on two ambulances overnight between 6pm on Saturday, March 28 and the following morning.
In both reports, the vehicles had been parked in Haine Road, Ramsgate.
District Commander for Thanet, Chief Inspector Ed Ruffle, said: “To cause damage to ambulances during a time when it is so important all medical resources are available, is deeply concerning and we are continuing to carry out additional patrols in the area.
“We thank those who have come forward already with information.
