A FAMILY have put up a reward for the conviction of thugs who have caused £30,000 of damage to their property.

Steve Walker and his family have suffered four attacks on their cars and property in the last 11 months.

Mr Walker, 49, said: ‘My wife is getting to the point where she’s frightened to live here. This time they have physically attacked the house.

‘The cost is spiralling out of control. You keep spending thousands to try and protect yourself and it just keeps happening.’

In the latest incident crooks scaled the gated driveway of their London Road home in Waterlooville, smashing windows of Mr Walker’s purple Audi A3 and a blue Nissan Navara belonging to a visiting friend at about 9.45pm on Friday. Windows to the house were also smashed.

Two men were seen getting into a small dark coloured hatchback car with a loud exhaust which sped off, travelling south on London Road. It pulled out of the bus lane and nearly collided with another vehicle.

In the previous attack in November white gloss paint over the gates, wall and driveway.

Mr Walker returned home to find his two work vans had been shot at with an air rifle on June 17 last year.

And on April 5 paint stripper was thrown over the walls, damaging a red Dodge Ram, a silver Lexus LS460 and a green Jaguar XJR.

Police have now released CCTV of the two suspects in the latest incident and Mr Walker is now putting up a £1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.

Waterlooville PC Matt Cumming said: ‘It should be no surprise that this has had a profound affect on Mr Walker and his family. They have now suffered their fourth attack inside a year and it simply has to stop.’
