Police Appealing for information after a marked police van was vandalised


Between 2330hrs on Thursday the 29th of November and 0045hrs on Friday the 30th of November a marked Police van parked on Pollock Crescent, Kilwinning was targeted and it's windscreen was smashed.

The police unit had attended Pollock Crescent to assist the Scottish Ambulance Service with a life-threatening medical emergency. With the householder conveyed to Crosshouse Hospital, the officers returned to their vehicle and observed the damage.

Chief Inspector Colin Convery - Area Commander for North Ayrshire - says "This vandalism meant that a marked vehicle has had to be taken off the road until the windscreen can be replaced, and as such is unable to respond to priority incidents or assist those in need. This kind of act, especially given the consequences, is grossly irresponsible. An emergency repair is currently being carried out."

Police Scotland are appealing for anyone with information on the incident to contact them on 101 quoting incident 3909 of the 29th November or if they wish to report anonymously they can do via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
