Sgt Steven Federico, of Bournemouth police, said: “These mindless acts of criminal damage have caused the owners great inconvenience and expense.
“I am appealing to anyone who may have information about any of these incidents, or may have seen someone acting suspiciously in these areas to call police in confidence.
“I would like to encourage anyone who may have had property damaged in this way to report it to police, and urge the public to keep their eyes peeled for anyone acting suspiciously in their area.”
Bournemouth Council removed a lot of the paint from resident’s property.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 22:137, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
