An imitation gun is being used to carry out a spate of criminal damage across Fleetwood, police have warned.
Officers say ball bearings from a BB gun have been found at the scenes of various incidents where damage has been caused.
Residents on five different streets all reported damage from the same night.
It is thought the incidents all took places under cover of darkness, between 5.30pm and 11pm on Monday. Incidents were reported on Addison Road, St John Avenue, Broadwater, Larkholme Parade and Lord Street.
A police spokesman said: “There have been a number of criminal damages reported overnight where some sort of BB gun has been used. A number of small ball bearings have been found at the scene.”
