Police appeal after trail of damaged Penzance property

POLICE are appealing for information in relation to a recent spate of offences in the Eastern Green area of Penzance.

A property in Foxes Fields was broken into between December 21 to 24 where offenders caused damage using paints and fire extinguishers. The culprits also damaged a large number of personal belongings within the house. (Crime log: AP/13/319).

On Christmas night at about 9.40pm stones were pulled from a Cornish hedge in Branwells Lane.

The stones were then thrown, causing extensive damage to three properties.

Fortunately no residents were injured despite one large stone landing on a pillow in an unoccupied bedroom. (Crime log: AP/13/3195, 3196 and 3197.)

It is thought that the same offenders then walked through Freshbrook Close, pushing over bins before entering the Jewson site on Jelbert Way where two males were caught by police.

Extensive damage was caused to vehicles and property within and again police are appealing for witnesses. (Crime log: AP/13/3198).

The two males arrested are aged 16 and 20, and are currently on police bail.

If anyone witnessed any of these incidents on Christmas night between 9pm and 11.15pm in the Eastern Green area, police would like them to phone 101 using the crime reference numbers or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

A police spokesman said: "These offences have caused a large amount of distress to families and residents during the Christmas period."

    These low lifes need to be caught and given a taste of their own medicine. Take away their mobile phones, tablets etc and destroy them. Name and shame them and at the same time make them pay every penny of the cost of the damage they have caused. Forget their human rights as they don't qualify.
