"It's all quite random. There is no common denominator," he said.
"On some vehicles it's one or two tyres slashed, on others it's the bodywork."
The pair were caught on a home-owner's private CCTV system.
The attacks happened on the nights of February 19-20 and February 21-22 in Kingfisher Way, Houldsworth Road and Lower Saltram, in Plymstock.
PC Haines said the CCTV footage was taken just after 9pm on February 19.
He said the footage showed them damaging the owner's car.
