A number of rubbish bins, some of them containing paper rubbish, were set alight last week.

On the night of 5th August, 2013, several rubbish bins were set alight in “An den Drei Hasen” which caused damage to a neighbouring building.

In the early hours of Friday, 9th August, rubbish bins and a newspaper stand were set alight in the Hans-Mess-Straße in Oberstedten.  Three fire engines attended and a small transporter was also damaged by the flames.

Witnesses are asked to call detectives in Bad Homburg on 06172 1200.
