Two schoolboys, one aged 13 and the other 15, have been ordered to work with the Youth Offending Team in Warwick following a wave of car crime.
Thirteen wing mirrors were smashed off car doors in Wharf Street, Broad Street and Guys Cliffe Terrace on the night of the town bonfire, November 8, last year.
After speaking to witnesses, police traced a group of three boys and two girls and discovered it was the 13 and 15-year-old who had embarked on the destruction spree, one boy egging the others on in an act of bravado and an attempt to impress the others.
PC Wendy Burrows said: “Both boys have been conditionally cautioned for the offences during that evening and are now required to work with the Youth offending Team to address their behaviour and consider the consequences of their actions.
“Their parents and school teachers have been spoken to and the boys will also have to embark on some reparation work in the community. If they breach any of the conditions of this caution they will be taken before the courts.
“This will be their last chance to avoid that.”
