Witness appeal after ball bearings fired at properties

We are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage after ball bearings were fired at properties in Redlynch.

At around 6pm on September 11 in Castle Woods and 5pm on October 19 in the Vale Road area, unknown suspects have launched metal ball bearings at property, causing glass to smash.

It is unknown how these bearings have been fired, but it is thought to have been either a catapult or air related weapon.

Any members of the public who witnessed either of these incidents or saw anybody carrying an item capable of firing projectiles, or anyone with dash cam footage, is asked to contact us on 101 quoting reference 54230111647.

Please remember that there is a Public Space Protection Order in place covering Downton and Redlynch which prohibits having a catapult on your person at any time.
