Police are to mount extra patrols in Sandy after teenagers smashed car mirrors, egged windows and kicked down fences during a spate of vandalism over the weekend.
The yobs, thought to be in their early teens, have targeted homes and cars in streets including St Neots Road and Kingsley Court.
Residents have taken to social media to complain, with one writing on the ‘Sandy, Bedfordshire’ Facebook group: “It’s a nightmare though – why do they feel the need to destroy other people’s property?”
Another commented: “The more reports police receive the better – it will hopefully bring some police presence in the area.”
A police spokeswoman told the Comet yesterday: “Since Friday we have received four reports of a group of youths carrying out anti-social behaviour in Sandy, including fences being damaged, bins being kicked and eggs being thrown at houses.
