Police Light - 2014-03-22

During the night of Wednesday 4th March 2015 THIRTY cars were damaged in High Wycombe in a second night of vandalism targeting vehicles parked beside the road.

Between 7.00pm and 10.00pm car windows were smashed and graffiti sprayed on vehicles in roads on the Cressex, Booker and Sands estates. One of the vehicles damaged was a police vehicle.

The vehicles had windows smashed and graffiti on the damaged cars read “NJNP” which Police believe may stand for “No Justice, No Peace”.

At this time the motivation for this damage is believed to be related to the recent outcome of the inquest into the death of Habib Ullah, although the actions are not supported or sanctioned by campaign organisers. Thames Valley Police is aware that campaign organisers representing the family of Habib Ullah have stated they do not support such action.

So far there have been no arrests in connection with the criminal damage that occurred on Wednesday 4th March 2015

This follows a previous spate of criminal damage on the evening of Tuesday 3rd March 2015 when 23 vehicles were damaged in similar areas.

Following the incident on Tuesday 3rd March 2015 four men aged 26, 27,19 and 18 from High Wycombe were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage in connection with the incident on Tuesday and have subsequently been released on bail.

Supt Ed Mclean LPA Commander for Wycombe said: ‘I would like to reassure the community that we will have additional resources patrolling the area to prevent further crimes of this nature taking place.

We would also ask residents to remain vigilant and immediately report sightings of anti-social and suspicious behaviour to police. This will help us to identify who is behind these mindless acts of criminality targeting innocent members of the public.
