Two nights of madness

By Jessica Anstice

Three people were arrested following the damage of more than 40 vehicles during two overnight crime sprees.

It is believed the offenders used rocks to smash vehicle windows of parked cars in Pakenham, Officer and Beaconsfield.

Two 22-year-old men, both from Pakenham, were charged with 37 counts of damage relating to the incidents that occurred on 4 January and 10 January.

Also involved in the crime spree was a 32-year-old Pakenham woman, who was charged for stealing petrol.

The three offenders were bailed to appear at the Dandenong Magistrates Court at a later date.

Police are still appealing for any witnesses and victims – contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with information.
