Nine electric cars vandalized - vandalism at several schools
On Tuesday, employees discovered the damage to nine brand new electric cars. They were parked for charging at the Municipal Hall.
The car windows had been smashed and the rear-view mirrors kicked in.
–This is terribly sad, says acting Municipal Manager Oskar Nilsson.
He says vandalism has increased recently, something he thinks is totally unacceptable.
– This is no longer a bit of mischief but criminal damage.
The municipality is going to undertake various measures, among other things, security guards will carry out more rounds and camera surveillance will be put in place.
There is a suspicion that it’s a gang of youth carrying out the vandalism.
– Parents must keep track of what their children are doing, says Municipal Councillor Patric Åberg (M).
Vandalism to schools continues. Last week, the police received several reports of vandalism. This week three incidents were reported.
At Magnolian's pre-school on Göingegatan in Knislinge, things from the schoolyard have been stolen, someone has sprayed foam in a sandbox, pulled out stones from a pavement, broken electrical contacts, cut open outdoor furniture and thrown cigarette butts and cans everywhere.
At Prästavångskolan several windows have been smashed in the school, the gym class and the playhouse. The furniture in the playhouse has been destroyed.
This is the third major incident of vandalism at the school since Midsummer.
Göingeskolan in Broby and Snapphaneskolan in Knislinge have also been affected by vandalism.
