A Deal resident is appealing for information after her car was one of more than 20 'keyed' by a vandal.
Officers received a report that a car had been scratched while parked in Wellington Road between 11am on Wednesday, August 9 and 11am on Friday, August 11.
When they attended the scene they found a further two cars in the same road had been damaged in a similar way.
Reports of damage to four cars were also made in Blenheim Road on Sunday, August 11.
Although police have received only seven reports of damage, the resident, who didn’t want to be named, claims the number of cars affected is much higher.
She said: “Sometime between Wednesday late afternoon and Friday morning, a callous, thoughtless idiot decided to ‘key’ all the cars belonging to the residents of Wellington Road, Deal, that happened to be parked there at that unfortunate time.
“Upon investigation on Sunday I discovered that residents in our next road - Blenheim Road, have also been targeted!
“I counted 21 cars in total!
“This despicable person has caused thousands and thousands of pounds worth of damage.
“If anyone has any information regarding this incident or if they a victim, please contact police.
“We, the residents, would be more than grateful as this perpetrator must be held accountable!”
A police spokesman said: “Enquiries are ongoing.
“Anyone who might have witnessed the incidents can call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting ZY/37500/17.”
