Vandals target car aerials

CAR vandals are being hunted by police after three vehicles were targeted in one night.

Aerials were unscrewed and stolen from three cars during the space of a few hours in Coronation Avenue, in Horden.

Police are now appealing for help in catching those responsible for the thefts that happened during the night of Sunday, January 9, or into the early hours of the next morning.

Detective Sergeant Steve Thubron, of Peterlee CID, said: "This is probably just kids, but to those whose aerials have been taken it is a serious offence.

"We would appeal for anyone with information about who this might have been to get in touch."

Anyone who can help detectives are asked to ring Peterlee Police on 0845 6060365 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
