VANDALS who etched a four-letter swear word into the side of a parked car are wanted by police who are investigating a spate of incidents in the Forest of Dean.

Officers say a profanity was scratched into the paintwork of a black Vauxhall Astra which was left in a car park at Lords Hill, Coleford, in the early hours of Sunday.

A driver has also been reported to police for failing to stop following a collision on Newent High Street at around 6pm last Wednesday.

A police spokesman said: “The victim called to report that his car had been struck by another vehicle, damaging the wing mirror of his car.

“The driver of the offending vehicle failed to stop.”

A BMX was also stolen from outside of Braodwell Lane post office, off Speech House Road, between 4pm and 5pm on Friday, April 11.

A total of eight 18kg propane bottles, as well as six empty ones, were also taken in a suspected burglary from Newent Business Park, Gloucester Road, between Saturday, April 12, and Monday, April 14.

Police are investigating two other reported burglaries in Tutshill. A Toshiba laptop, a watch and jewellery, cash, and keys to a grey Land Rover Freelander were taken from a property on Elm Road between 7pm and 10pm on Friday, April 11. A property on Wyebank Avenue was also entered but nothing was taken on Monday, April 14.

Anybody with information on the offences are urged to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
