Radlett residents were left frustrated and confused after a number of cars were broken into for seemingly no reason recently.
A number of cars were smashed open along New Road and Park Road on the evening of October 22 – yet all of the owners’ possessions were left alone.
Aoife Moran, whose blue Peugeot was shattered on New Road, had just finished her first half term as a newly qualified teacher when the crime took place.
The 22-year-old said: “I was, and still am, pretty devastated by what happened really. It was almost more frustrating that the person who did it didn’t take anything, because there really wasn’t any reason for it.
“I had coats and different boxes of items in there as I’d only come back from university recently, and it was all just left there. It’s very confusing.
“At first I was quite scared by it, but when I realised other cars had been broken into nearby I realised it was obviously nothing to do with me personally, it just became infuriating.
“The only positive thing to come of this, if there’s anything, is the response the community had to it. People stopped and tried to figure out who’s cars they were, and I had plenty of people contact me to see if I was alright, which was really nice to see.”
