POLICE are still seeking witnesses and information one month after cars were vandalised in Sandridge, causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage.

The vandalism occurred between 6pm on Bank Holiday Monday, April 9, and 8.30am on Tuesday April 10.

A spokeswoman for Herts police said someone dented the driver’s side door of a silver Ford Fiesta parked in Hopkins Crescent.

Then between 10.30pm and 10.45pm on April 9, someone threw a stone at a High Street shop, cracking a window.

Between 2pm and 1.30pm on Tuesday April 10, the back passenger side window and wing mirrors of a red Ford Fiesta parked on St Heliers Road were broken.

And between 7pm April 9 and 10am Tuesday, April 10, a stone was used to smash the rear window of a silver Peugeot 206 parked on a drive in the High Street.

Around the time of the incident at the shop, two men were seen walking along the High Street towards Wheathampstead.

Police are particularly keen to speak to the men as they may be able to help with enquiries.

They are described as white and aged 18-20. The first was of slim build and had short dark hair.

Investigating officer DC Maria Gallucci, from the safer neighbourhood team at St Albans, said: “At this stage we are linking all four incidents and we are particularly keen to speak to the two men seen in the area shortly after 10.30pm on Monday.

“Many hundreds of pounds-worth of damage was caused to people’s property, so if you know or saw anything that could help bring the culprits to justice, I would urge you to get in touch with police.”

Anyone with information should contact police on the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
