A FLINTSHIRE man has been left 'frustrated' after waking up to find his cars had been keyed overnight.

Robert Mahood, who lives on Min Awel in Flint, was awakened by a noise and a secury light coming on at the front of his property at 1am on Thursday, August 4.

He says he looked out of his bedroom window to see 'two lads dressed in dark tracksuits' running down his drive and across the road down an ally opposite his home.

Rob says that it wasn't until later on that morning he realised the damage which had been done to the cars.

The Citroen C3 and Renault Clio both suffered severe scratch damage, which Rob believes were done with either stones or keys.

He said: "I went out and checked around my property but did not see anything suspicious at that time.

"Then, late on in the morning i went and had another look in the day light and seen that my partners and my car had been vandalised. There were scratches down both doors.

"This has been reported to the police who are investigating, a description has been given and neighbours are being checked for CCTV in the street and surrounding properties as well.

The Leader:

PIC: Damage done to Mr Mahood's car in Flint.

"I would also like to put a £500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the offenders.

"As a result of this we are now having CCTV and alarm system fitted around our property. 

"I just want to make people aware fo what's happened really and show that we won't just stand back and take this."
