Vandal causes damage to cars across parts of Amber Valley

Posted on 23rd February 2017

We’re trying to find the person responsible for causing significant damage to more than ten cars in parts of Amber Valley by pouring paint stripper on them.

We’re investigating cases in Pye Bridge, Alfreton and Pinxton which have taken place between Friday, February 17 and Monday, February 20.

The highest number of attacks happened on the night of February 18 when eight vehicles were targeted. We have released these images of damage caused to a red Ford Fiesta, which was attacked on the night of February 20 when it was parked on a driveway at Glebe Avenue, Pinxton.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call South Normanton and Pinxton Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
