A burglar was disturbed by a dog as he attempted to break into a house in St Albans.

The burglary took place in Garden House Lane between 2.40pm and 2.50pm on Tuesday, November 13, and police are appealing for information and witnesses.

A man attempted to force open a window and climbed onto the roof of the building, but was disturbed by a neighbour’s dog barking. He then went off into the grounds.

The burglar is described as white, wearing a dark hoodie and carrying a rucksack.

A metal bird feeder pole was stolen from the garden.

“Any witnesses or anyone with information can contact me at tony.kong@herts.pnn.police.uk or through the non-emergency number 101, by quoting reference 41/55797/18.
