CCTV images of man wanted over vandalism of car wah in Ipswich


CCTV images have been released of a man police want to speak to over £6,500 worth of damage caused to a car wash in Ipswich.

Just after midnight on Saturday, June 28, two men entered the grounds of a car wash in Derby Road.

The two men entered the front of the car wash and pierced holes in liquid containers, causing the contents to empty.

They also caused damage to a canopy, cut vacuum pipes at various intervals and set-off a fire extinguisher before fleeing.

The estimated value of the damage caused is £6,650.

One man wore baggy tracksuit bottoms and top, light coloured trainers and a covering over his face.

The other wore light coloured trainers and was also wearing a face covering.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Glenn Perkins at Ipswich police on 101, quoting IE/14/1703, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
