Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

At around 9.50pm on Tues­day April 11, a man was seen walk­ing in Broad Street be­fore he en­tered the rear yard of the po­lice sta­tion.

Us­ing his weapon, the of­fender dam­aged the wind­screen of both a po­lice Vaux­hall Corsa and a Vaux­hall Vi­varo parked in­side the po­lice have said.

He then walked to­wards a white Ford Fi­esta and hit the ve­hi­cle twice on its wind­screen and also dam­aged a red Hyundai in the next bay.

Af­ter dam­ag­ing four ve­hi­cles, the of­fender left the sta­tion yard and was seen walk­ing down Broad Street.

He was spot­ted at around 9.50pm near the Higham Road junc­tion.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cers are ap­peal­ing for any­one who wit­nessed the inci- van yard, dent or any­one who saw a white flatbed ve­hi­cle trav­el­ling from the Berkham­sted Road to­wards Higham Road.

This car is be­lieved to have been driven past the sta­tion and po­lice be­lieve the oc­cu­pants may have in­for­ma­tion which could help their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice Con­sta­ble Scott Lear, a Thames Val­ley Po­lice of­fi­cer based at Amer­sham Po­lice Sta­tion, con­demned the man’s ac­tions and said it was a “mind­less act”.

“A thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion is now un­der way and we are ap­peal­ing di­rectly to the com­mu­nity to help us bring the per­son re­spon­si­ble to jus­tice,” he said.

“Dam­ag­ing po­lice ve­hi­cles is a mind­less act which puts them tem­po­rar­ily out of ac­tion whilst they un­dergo re­pairs.

“We are de­ter­mined to lo­cate and iden­tify the of­fender.

“If you have any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this in- cident please call the Thames Val­ley Po­lice 24hour en­quiry cen­tre on 101, quot­ing in­ci­dent ref­er­ence 43170105707.”
