Witness appeal to series of smashed windows

Alert message sent 21/01/2020 16:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Windows of a number of properties have been damaged in a series of what appears to be random attacks in the south west of the county. 

In every case a single window pane was smashed during the evening/early hours on the following dates: 

On Saturday 21 December, unknown offenders broke the window of a property on Victoria Road, Warminster.  On the same day a window was smashed at an address on Clay Street, Crockerton. 

Then on Friday 17 January a window was broken at a house in Chitterne; in the same village on Shrewton Road, between the evening of 17 January and the afternoon of the 18 January another property’s window was hit. 

Also, on the same evening an address on the High Street in Shrewton was targeted, with a window being broken. 

PC Graham Briant said:  “We are appealing for witnesses to these cases of criminal damage.

“In each case the hole made in the glass was marble sized and could have been fired from a weapon like a catapult. 

“There doesn’t appear to be a connection between any of the victims, so we believe these are random attacks.” 

If you can help with our enquiries or know anything about this criminal damage, please contact us on 101 quoting crime reference number 54200005997.  Alternatively you can report anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
