Every panel of car destroyed with corrosive substance

Police are appealing for information after every panel on a car in Co Armagh was destroyed by a corrosive substance.

The incident in question happened on the evening of February 26 in Portadown.

However, police have tonight (Sunday) released an image and details of the crime.

A police spokesperson said: “This is someone’s car (pictured). It was parked across the road from Moy Park in Portadown on 26/02/2018 between 8.45pm and 11.40pm when a considerable amount of corrosive substance was poured over it, causing extensive damage to every panel of the vehicle.

“Whether this was a targeted attack, mindless vandalism, or mistaken identity doesn’t really matter.

“What matters is that someone worked to pay for a car which is now massively damaged.

“People like that shouldn’t be given a hiding place in our community.

“If you know who is responsible or have heard someone talk about it since, call us on 101. The reference number is 23 of 27/02/2018. You can also speak anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
