DETECTIVES say they are following up a number of leads in their investigation into mass vandalism of cars in the south of the island.
On Sunday, October 7, corrosive liquid was sprayed at around 70 cars.
Detective Sergeant Neil Craig said: ‘We are continuing to make further inquiries, in what is still very much a live investigation with a number of positive lines of inquiry.
‘It is as part of these inquiries that I am extremely keen to speak to anyone who may not as yet have reported their vehicle as having been damaged.’
But one lead has so far been fruitless.
Sergeant Craig said: ‘An earlier press release appealing for the driver or anyone knowing the details of the silver vehicle that turned in the Surby junction has so far not resulted in anyone coming forward and I would ask that if you know anything about this vehicle you contact the police so it can be eliminated from our inquiries.’
As we reported earlier in the month, Crimestoppers has offered a £1,000 reward for information.
Sergeant Craig added: ‘I would again like to make an appeal to anyone who may have any information or knowledge about these damages, no matter how small they may feel this is, to contact my colleagues at Port Erin police station on 832222, Castletown police station on 822222, police headquarters on 631212 or alternatively information can also be given about this, or any other crime, anonymously via Crimestoppers, which is an organisation unconnected to the police, on 0800 555 111.’
