17 vehicles damaged in Rostrevor incident

Local police are appealing for information and witnesses after over a dozen vehicles were damaged in Rostrevor last weekend.

Speaking to Newry Times, Sergeant Steven Lawson said, “We received a report at approximately 10:10 pm on Saturday, 28 July that a car parked in the Kilbroney Court area had been sprayed with orange paint on the driver’s side.



“It is believed this occurred between 9:55 pm and 10:10 pm.

“At the same time, it was reported a number of other vehicles in the vicinity had also been sprayed with orange-coloured paint. 

“We now know a total of 17 vehicles were damaged.



He continued, “Our enquiries are continuing and we are working to establish a motive for the attacks.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area around this time on Saturday night and witnessed any suspicious activity, or any drivers who were in the area around this time and have a dash cam fitted in their vehicles to check their footage.



“Anyone with information is asked to contact police in Ardmore on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1487 of 28/07/18.

“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime,” Sergeant Lawson added.
