Police Cars Set On Fire
Police have released images of a person they would like to speak to after two police cars were set alight in Hertfordshire.
A man approached two police cars parked at Abbots Langley Police Station at around 3am on Monday 4 March 2013.
The man smashed the rear side windows and threw a flammable substance into both vehicles and set them alight, causing substantial damage to the interior of both cars.
The man police would like to speak to is described as tall, thin and white, wearing a long blue Puffa jacket, with the hood up. He was wearing black trousers, black footwear, which appears to have a white buckle, and gloves. The man was carrying a green jerry can in an ASDA bag for life carrier bag.
Detective Constable Gordon King, of the Three Rivers Local Crime Unit, said: "This criminal damage has caused several thousands of pounds worth of damage which will not only cost the tax payer, but could potentially have led to a much more serious incident if the fire had spread or the petrol tanks had exploded."
Three Rivers Chief Inspector Catherine Akehurst, said: "This is a serious and unacceptable crime and if you have any information about this incident or believe you might know the person involved, I urge you to contact the police immediately. We continue to deliver our service as usual from Abbots Langley Police Station and I would like to reassure the public that this incident has not affected our operational policing capacity within the locality."
Anyone with information should contact DC Gordon King via the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
