Police are appealing for information after car windows and fences were smashed in roads in Stenson Fields.
In the last two weeks, several incidents have been reported to police where offenders have targeted vehicles or properties overnight.
They include two incidents in Tregony Way, where cars parked in the street had their windows smashed at about 7.30pm on Thursday, October 24.
At about 8pm on the same night, a car window was smashed in Pilgrims Way, while overnight on Friday, October 25, another vehicle was targeted in Eggesford Road.
Fences at properties in Quickhill Road were also damaged between Friday, October 18 and Thursday, October 24.
Police have been increasing patrols in the area and want to hear from anyone who may know who is responsible for the criminal damage.
PCSO Lee Orme, from Mercia Safer Neighbourhood Team, which covers the area, said: “This kind of mindless behaviour has a huge impact on the victims and it simply will not be tolerated.
“We will be increasing patrols and speaking to people about how they can protect their cars, such as by parking in well-lit areas or on a driveway where they can.
“We also need people to report suspicious activity straight away. If it doesn’t sit right, call us and we could stop a crime before it even happens.”
Witnesses or anyone with information relating to any of the above incidents should call Derbyshire police on 101 and ask to speak to PCSO Orme or PCSO Karen Coldicott.
