CCTV appeal following criminal damage in Bournemouth

Alert message sent 13/07/2020 15:41:00

Information sent on behalf of Dorset Alert

Officers are issuing images of two men they would like to speak to as part of an investigation into criminal damage to cars in Bournemouth.

 At around 8.50pm on Wednesday 8 July 2020 four cars were damaged on the forecourt of Koz Kars on Castle Lane West. Tyres were slashed and the body work of the vehicles was scratched.

 The damage followed a similar incident around a week earlier at the same location, with three vehicles damaged between 6pm on Tuesday 30 June and 8am on Wednesday 1 July 2020.

 Police Community Support Investigator Chris Wilson, of Dorset Police, said: “This damage has caused considerable inconvenience and cost to a local business and we are making enquiries to identify who is responsible.

“I have obtained CCTV images of two men we would like to speak to as part of our investigation. I appreciate the images are not of the best quality but I am hoping someone may be able to recognise them from the clothing they are wearing, particularly the jacket with a distinctive pattern one of them is wearing.

“I would also appeal to anyone who has witnessed any suspicious activity when driving past the location at the relevant times or may have captured anything on dashcam footage to please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at, via email or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55200099480. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at or call freephone 0800 555 111.
