Police are investigating a string of vehicle damage reports in Cumbria
Between the January and February 18 there have been 43 vehicles reported to have sustained damage in Maryport.
A large percentage of these have occurred in Church Terrace, but there have been many other locations where cars and vans have been damaged.
Damage has been mainly to wingmirrors or bodywork.
Officers are looking for a number of people in connection with the incidents.
Det Serg Mark Cox said: “Enough is enough.
“These incidents of criminal damage are purely mindless vandalism and will not be tolerated by Cumbria Police or the community of Maryport.
“A motor car is often a person’s pride and joy and paid for as a result of hard work by law abiding citizens.
“We are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed anything in relation to this criminal damage.
“A large number of incidents have occurred during the early hours of a Wednesday and late Sunday night.
“I am sure that most people within the community of Maryport will know someone who has had their vehicle attacked and I am absolutely convinced someone out there will know the names of those responsible.”
Witnesses can contact police on 101 and ask to speak to the on duty Sergeant in Workington CID or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
