The most recent image involves £30,000 worth of damage that was caused when 35 cars on the forecourt had paint stripper poured over them.

The owner of a second hand car dealership has released a CCTV image in the hopes of finding a vandal who caused tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage to vehicles in deliberate attacks reports the Telegraph and Argus on August 9.

The most recent image involves £30,000 worth of damage that was caused when 35 cars on the forecourt had paint stripper poured over them. Days before, the same man is thought to have used a screwdriver to scratch the paintwork of 30 vehicles causing £15,000 damage.

The attacks happened at LCC Car Sales in Shipley and the owner told the Telegraph and Argus that he believes it was someone trying to drive them out of business. The family run business has run from the site for 13 years and they believe a rival car dealer may want to take over there.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman told the paper:

“These appear to be targeted attacks and we are treating them extremely seriously.

“This type of criminal behaviour clearly presents a financial impact, not to mention a disruption to business.

As experts in security systems, AlertSystems stresses the importance of a CCTV security system to protect your business.

By ensuring you have the best security available and HD CCTV, you can increase your chances of being able to identify those responsible or have information to pass onto the police or media for an appeal.”
