Appeal after police van damaged in Gamesley

Alert message sent 17/06/2020 11:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

We are investigating an act of criminal damage against a marked police van in Gamesley.
The vehicle was parked in Grindleford Grove on Monday 15 June while officers attended an emergency call.

Two of its tyres were slashed at some point between 8.40pm and 8.50pm.

Sergeant Anna Woodhouse, of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team, said: “It appears that a knife may have been used to cause the damage and puncture the tyre walls, and it left our officer unable to respond to any further calls while recovery was arranged. The vehicle is now off the road until new tyres are fitted.

“It was still light at that time, and we are hoping someone may have noticed something suspicious or who may have any information which could help with our inquiries.”

If you have any information which could help please contact us using one of the following non-emergency contact methods.

Please quote the reference number 20*304219 and the name of the officer in the case, PC Victoria Atherton, in any correspondence. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Please note in the event of an emergency you should always call 999.
