Car ownerpleads for help with vandalism

A TAMWORTH victim of car vandals is convinced those responsible for a series of tyre slashings on the weekend are the same people who smashed the windows and windscreens of more than 40 cars three weeks ago.

Angry and frustrated, the city resident, who did not want to be named, contacted The Leader yesterday after two tyres on his car were slashed during the early hours of Sunday morning.

At least 10 vehicles parked in Corigal, Marius, High and Brisbane streets and Mahoney and Kable Ave had one or more tyres slashed in the latest wave of vandalism.

And although police have no firm leads at this stage, the resident is sure there is a connection between the latest tyre slashings and the attacks a few weeks ago where a number of car windscreens were smashed. He said he woke sometime after 1am on Sunday to the sound of a car with a sports cylinder exhaust slowing and stopping a number of times before taking off.

“It sounded like the same car I heard about three weeks ago when the right-hand driver’s side window on my car was smashed in the random wave of attacks around Tamworth,” he said.

“I’m convinced the same people are responsible for slashing the tyres on my car and smashing my window. At first I just thought the car was dropping people off, but when I went out later that morning I found the tyres had been slashed.

“It’s inconvenient to have a car window smashed by vandals, but to have two tyres slashed in a separate attack only three weeks later is just frustrating. Surely someone out there knows who is


“Their days are numbered. It’s only a matter of time before they are caught. They can’t keep it up forever without someone recognising them or the car they get around in.”

Earlier this month car owners were left thousands of dollars out of pocket when vandals went on a rampage through the streets of Tamworth, smashing car windscreens and windows.

At the time of the attacks police said they followed no active pattern, indicating they were more than likely carried out randomly. The offenders responsible for these attacks have not been caught.

In a similar incident only a week earlier more than 40 front and rear number plates were stolen from vehicles.

Anyone with information about any of the attacks is urged to contact Tamworth police on 6768 2999 or Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
