Three teenagers have been questioned by police in connection with a vandalism spree in Spalding town centre.
The youths, aged 15, 16 and 17, were identified by police who studied CCTV footage of up to 15 businesses that were targeted overnight on October 6.
It may be that owners with vehicles where a locking cap is not fitted haven’t noticed the theft and it’s not been reported to usA Lincolnshire Police spokesman
A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said the youths had been bailed until November 15 while enquiries and forensic work continue into the incident.
Meanwhile, police in Holbeach are dealing with a “significant” number of reports where fuel has been stolen from vehicles over the last few days.
In some cases, fuel caps were damaged before fuel was taken from both diesel and petrol vehicles.
Police are trying to find out if the thefts, which mainly took place in the Boston Road North and Washway Road areas of Holbeach, may be connected.
A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “It may be that owners with vehicles where a locking cap is not fitted haven’t noticed the theft and it’s not been reported to us.
“But even though the theft of fuel may have been a relatively small amount, the damage caused to vehicles could be more costly.”
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident number 91 of November 2, or you can make an anonymous report with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
