Officers in Perth are appealing for information after the tyres of five Royal Mail vans were slashed by vandals in a sorting office car park.

The incident occurred outside the delivery office on Breadalbane Terrace sometime between 6pm on August 13 and 6am on August 15.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen something, or captured dash-cam footage, to come forward.

The office is in a business complex, but is also near a gym and a supermarket and is on the route to a residential area.

While the sorting office was closed, people visiting the gym or the supermarket may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area, police said.

Constable Frank Shek, Perth Police Station, said: “This was obviously a deliberate act. The damage runs into hundreds of pounds not to mention the inconvenience to the mail delivery in the area.

“Officers have been checking local CCTV since the vandalism was reported, however, would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area at the time, who may for example have dash-cam footage, to get in touch.

“The sorting office is in a business complex but it is also near a gym and a supermarket and is on the route to a residential area, so although it appears the sorting office was closed when the vandalism took place, it’s possible people visiting the gym or the supermarket may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area.

“If you have any information that would assist officers with their enquiry, then please call police via 101 quoting reference number 0757 of Monday, August 15. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “Police are investigating vandalism of tyres on five Royal Mail vehicles at our Delivery Office on Breadalbane Terrace in Perth.

“We expect this incident to have no impact on services to customers, including deliveries.

“We cannot comment further on what is an ongoing police investigation.”
