Exmouth car vandalism - ‘pointless crime’

The police at Exmouth hope residents can help officers catch the culprit who smashed the windscreen of a car while it was parked to the rear of a pub.

Exmouth police are appealing for witnesses after a vehicle parked in the town suffered what officers are calling a ‘pointless crime’.

The silver Volkswagen fox hatchback had been parked to the rear of the Powder Monkey pub when it was targeted by a vandal sometime between Sunday October 23 and the following day.

Anyone who may have seen or heard something suspicious is asked to contact the police.

Police community support officer Colin Balch said: “It had its front windscreen smashed and considerable damage caused to the surrounding metal area. “The damage was caused by using a heavy article.
