Vandals Cover House And Car In Paint

Tins of decorator’s paint were hurled over a car and a house in Tile Hill causing extensive damage in an apparently motiveless attack.

The creamy-yellow paint was thrown over the Mercedes car and front of the house in Hockley Lane between midnight and 4am on Tuesday.

Police say they are baffled by the attack and are appealing for help in finding the specialist paint.

Two empty tins of the Bromwell emulsion colour-based pastel colour were found nearby.

PC Richard Parker of Tile Hill police said:

“The paint is used mainly by tradesmen, painters, decorators or builders and is quite unusual.”

On the back of the tin in black marker pen the letters “AXJY” had been written, with "C40" underneath.

PC Parker said:

“There has been extensive damage to the car and the house and we are appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the night to contact us.”

Anyone who recognises the paint tins is also urged to get in touch on 0324 7653 9064 or 7653 9010.
