Night time patrols are being stepped up in an area of Long Sutton after a spate of incidents where gardens have been vandalised.
Plants, fence panels and coping stones have either been smashed, damaged or destroyed at a number of gardens in Little London, with the majority of incidents taking place during the early hours of the morning.
Police are increasing their presence in the area and residents are urged to report any suspicious activity they see straight away by calling 101.
Police Community Support Officer Fylippa Bennett said: “Many of the residents in this area are elderly so anti-social behaviour like this will not be tolerated.
“Damaging another person’s property is a criminal offence and we are focusing our efforts on identifying those responsible.”
