Reward offered to track down car vandals


Police say there’s a £1,000 reward for anyone who can help solve a vandalism spree in Castletown last month.


A total of 38 cars were attacked – with wing mirrors and wiper blades broken, as well as punctured tyres punctured.


Isle of Man charity Crimestoppers has now posted a reward for anyone who can identify those responsible.


The incident happened in the early hours of November 29, and sparked questions about policing in the town in Tynwald this week.



Police say the vehicles were attacked in Janet’s Corner, Bowling Green Road, Pickard Close, Smetana Close, Athol Terrace, Paradise Lane, Northcroft Apartments, Malew Street and The Crofts.

Three men in their teens or early twenties were spotted damaging a car in The Crofts at around 3am.

They’re described as slim or athletic, wearing dark clothing with hoods over their heads.

One man has been arrested in connection with the crimes, and was bailed without charge.

Anybody with any information has been urged to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
