Police in Bournemouth are investigating after more than 20 cars were damaged in the Queen's Park area.
It happened overnight on Wednesday 4 December and Thursday 5 December 2013. Tyres were damaged with a sharp instrument and one vehicle had a fabric roof damaged.

“If any residents in the area have CCTV, I ask they check it for any suspicious activity and report it to police.
“I also encourage victims of damage who have not yet reported it, to phone Dorset Police on 101 as soon as possible.”
Two boys, aged 17 and 14, and one girl, aged 13 – all from Bournemouth – have been arrested and released on police bail until the beginning of February.
