Officers enforcing a warrant at an address in Oysterfields, St Albans, on Friday found items including four TVs, a Chanel handbag and Crystal Champagne at the housing association premises.

Insp Jon Roche said: “We are now working with Aldwych Housing Association to review the residents’ tenancy as handling stolen property is a crime and a breach of a tenancy agreement.

“As a Community Safety Partnership, St Albans is using a multi-pronged approach to directly target known offenders; gather intelligence on those involved in crime; work with partner agencies, including housing associations; and make sure residents are given suitable crime prevention advice and join schemes like Neighbourhood Watch.”

The woman was arrested for handling stolen property and is now under police investigation.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
