Hardened criminals have made off with a tin of hardboiled sweets from a car in Wheathampstead.

Between 4pm on Friday, September 21 and 12pm on Monday, September 24, thieves broke into a car on Castle Rise in Wheathampstead.

They stole a tin of hardboiled cherry sweets and appear to have looked through the glove box, but stole nothing else.

Police have asked anyone who can help their investigation to ring 101 and quote crime reference number 41/39727/18.
