Slaughter of the cars in Turner

Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to multiple incidents of vehicle damage that occurred in Turner yesterday (Sunday, July 5).

ACT Policing responded to reports of 22 vehicles and six storage units being damaged in McLeay Street, while two vehicles and three storage units were damaged in Condamine Street.

Police believe these incidents are linked and may have occurred between 1am and 4am.

Officer-in-Charge of City Station, Acting Station Sergeant Carolyn Uhe said if your vehicle was damaged on Sunday morning ACT Policing would encourage you to contact Police Operations on 131444.

“It’s obvious those responsible for these mindless acts of vehicle and property damage have no idea how upsetting their actions are to the owners of the motor vehicles,” Acting Station Sergeant Uhe said.

“It is very distressing for the victims to find their vehicles and property damaged and personal belongings stolen.”

Police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via Information can be provided anonymously. Police remind people they should not report crime information via Facebook and Twitter pages.
