Inspector Peter Jones from Craigmillar Police Station said: “The culprits for these incidents have caused several hundreds of pounds worth of damage to these cars and the owners will either need to make claims on their insurance or fork out their own cash as a result.

“Crimes like this are not just a bit of harmless fun. They are mindless acts of vandalism that have a financial implication for the victims and they are totally unacceptable.”
