Ipswich Police Cars Damaged

Police are appealing for witnesses after a number of vehicles, including two police cars, were damaged across Ipswich in the early hours of Tuesday 30 July.

At 1.22am officers were called to Ravenswood Avenue by Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service to reports of a car deliberately set on fire near to the sports centre. The vehicle is thought to be a red Vauxhall or similar.

At 4.36am in Fletcher Road a white Ford transit van was deliberately set alight.

At 4.38am in Orwell Gardens a local resident called officers to report damage being caused to a grey BMW and a black Ford Focus.

At 5.19am in Clapgate Lane in Landseer Park a stolen car was found alight.

At 6.44am officers were made aware of damage to a police car in Clapgate Lane at the Ipswich South East Safer Neighbourhood Team base. The windows of the vehicle were smashed.

At 8.15am a police car in Heath Road at the Ipswich North East Safer Neighbourhood Team base was damaged. Windows of the vehicle were smashed and damage caused to the body work

Inspector Andrew Smethurst from Ipswich said: “We believe that all of these incidents may be linked and are currently following a number of enquiries to identify those who did this. Damaging vehicles is totally unacceptable behaviour and we will be doing all we can to catch the individuals responsible. We ask that if anyone witnessed any of the incidents or has any information to contact police on 101.”

Calls in relation to this should be made to PC Luke Burgin from Ipswich on 101.
