A SPATE of vandalism that led to damaged windows at businesses and a school in Stubbington is thought to have been caused by a catapult.
Damaged windows at Meoncross School, Burnt House Lane, have been linked to cracked windows at the Imperial Garden Chinese restaurant and Forget Me Not gift shop on Stubbington Green.
Police believe that the damage is linked to anti-social behaviour in Stubbington over Christmas.
A number of reports of doorbells being rung, nuisance callers and damage to windows were received in the Burnt House Lane area on Friday, December 28 and Saturday, December 29.
Between Monday, December 31 and Wednesday, January 2 a window at the Meoncross School in Burnt House Lane was damaged and two windows of a school minibus were broken.
PCSO Claire Martin said: ‘It is suspected that a catapult or similar device has been used to fire stones at the damaged glass.
‘I am particularly interested in any information that would help identify anyone who has been seen with a catapult or may have been given one as a Christmas present.’
Contact PCSO Martin at Park Gate police station by phoning 101.
