A 78-year old man has been found guilty of causing damage to luxury vehicles in Poole

Pensioner charged with £50k luxury car damage

William Lynch is accused of scratching the paintwork of 10 vehicles at the Extreme Body Centre in Poole, Dorset. The vehicles included his own Bently Turbo R, a Porsche Macan, and a Range Rover, along with a BMW 1 Series, Jeep Cherokee, and Toyota Celica.

The incident occurred after Lynch apparently wasn’t allowed to take home his Turbo R after work had been carried out due to a problem with his insurance.

The £50,000 worth of damage was caused when Lynch, wearing gloves, moved his hands over the bodywork of the vehicles while concealing a sharp object. This left deep scratches on the paint, going back to metalwork in some places.

Lynch claims mistaken identity, with James Moore, his defence, stating in court:

He says this is a case of mistaken identity. He factually denies being present. He factually denies causing any damage. He is very much of the opinion “I am not guilty. I did not do that”

Granted unconditional bail, he will appear at Bournemouth Crown Court on 4 April.
