POLICE believe they may know the people responsible for 23 ram raids across Logan last week, but despite this the culprits still haven't been caught.
Alarmingly after hitting 16 businesses last Monday night, they were able to get away with a further seven just three nights later.
Car yards, mechanical workshops, car performance retailers and bottle shops were among those left shattered after the two separate crime sprees.
In a press conference last week Logan District Officer Superintendent Noel Powers denied calls police needed a special taskforce to deal with the escalating crime.
"I think we have got enough resources on the ground to do it," Supt Powers said.
"We have got assistance coming from the Coomera and Gold Coast districts and from the State Crime Operations Support Command.
"We have got a number of leads we are following up on with the various information that is coming through."
Police have promised to set up extra patrols to catch the people causing extensive damage to local businesses.
"Our primary focus is to get onto these people, find out who they are and get them off the streets," he said.
"They are causing thousands of dollars worth of damage for little, if any gain.
"But we believe these offenders may be well-known to us."
Police believe the people responsible are from the Logan area after they dumped a blue Nissan Nirvana on Browns Plains Rd at Crestmead last Friday morning, causing a large police hunt throughout the suburb.
The police helicopter and dog squads were called in but the offenders managed to escape.
The car had been used to target a number of businesses spanning from Mt Warren Park to Meadowbrook, Browns Plains, Loganlea and Slacks Creek.
The offenders were also seen doing burnouts in the carpark of Park Ridge State School in the early hours of Friday morning.
The offenders are believed to be three Caucasian males and have been described as skinny.
They were wearing hoods and possibly balaclavas at the time of the offences.
Logan Mayor Pam Parker said she was disgusted with the recent acts of violence throughout Logan.
"This really is getting out of control," Cr Parker said.
"I am disgusted and bewildered by their sense of sheer vandalism.
"It is almost like a hobby to them and I hope the police are able to catch them and bring their crime sprees to an end."
Cr Parker urged anyone who may have heard or seen anything to contact the police or Crime Stoppers immediately.
"Somebody must know who they are and why they are doing this," she said.
"These criminals are destroying the livelihoods of local people and it needs to be stopped.
"They are hurting the hard working mum and dads are who are trying to provide a living for themselves and their families.
"They are causing thousands of dollars worth of damage for hardly any gain.
"So please, if you know anything, I urge you to contact the authorities immediately."
