Vandals who targeted two properties and a bus shelter in Hayle have caused more than £1,000 worth of damage.
Windows were broken at both the Spar shop and the Royal Mail sorting office at Foundry Square and a number of panels smashed at the nearby bus shelter.
The incident happened at around 11.45pm on Monday January 13.
Police Constable John Fulker said: “It is believed that the person responsible used a catapult and ball bearings to cause this damage.”
The bus shelter alone is thought to cost around £1,000 to repair.
PC Fulker added: “Whoever is responsible for this needs to realise that their irresponsible behaviour is having a negative effect on a wide section of the community. People need to be a bit more considerate and a bit more community minded.”
Police are asking for the public’s help to track down those responsible.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact 101 quoting crime reference AY/14/48.
