It was on Monday morning that staff discovered that four cars used by the general psychiatry's operations in Hallsberg had been vandalized.
"An unknown perpetrator has broken 16 tires and removed the front registration plates of four cars and then put them on the windshields," says Stefan Dangardt, press officer at the Bergslagen Region Police.
- This is really boring. It costs a lot of money just to have a private car destroyed, but this has so much bigger consequences. These vehicles are used for people who are in great need of help, says Ulrika Björklund, unit manager for general psychiatry in the Örebro County region in the southern county.No witnesses
The cars are now in the workshop. The police will not investigate the matter further.
- The motive is that it is obvious that the crime cannot be investigated, so that any person can be bound to it, because there are no witnesses, pictures from surveillance cameras or the like, says Stefan Dangardt.Got to request hand extension
On Monday, the business was forced to ask the police for help in taking a person in need of help to the hospital.
- We have people who come to us who are not feeling so well and need to help them get to the final wetlands in Karlskoga, Lindesberg or Örebro. Today we had one such case but no car available. That is why we had to request policy hand cover, says Ulrika Björklund.
- Tomorrow we have a nurse who will make home visits to patients with psychosis and schizophrenia problems. We hope to solve it by taking her own car, but it is not entirely clear. We have to solve this from day to day right now.
