Police cars torched in Abbots Langley
Police have released CCTV images after two police cars were set alight in Abbots Langley yesterday causing thousands pounds worth of damage.
The incident happened around 3am when a man smashed the rear side windows and threw a flammable substance into both cars outside Abbots Langley Police Station.
It is thought the incident could have been much more serious if the fire had spread or the petrol tanks had exploded.
The man police would like to speak to is described as tall, thin and white, wearing a long blue Puffa jacket, with the hood up. He was wearing black trousers, black footwear, which appears to have a white buckle, and gloves. The man was carrying a green jerry can in an ASDA bag for life carrier bag.
Detective Constable Gordon King, from the Three Rivers local crime unit, said: "This criminal damage has caused several thousands of pounds worth of damage which will not only cost the tax payer but could potentially have led to a much more serious incident if the fire had spread".
Abbots Langley Police Station has reassured residents the station is still operating as normal.
Anyone with information should contact DC Gordon King via the non-emergency number 101. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
