A 50-year-old man has been arrested and charged for conspiring to burgle houses in St Albans.

Dixie Palache, of Pamla Street in London, has been charged with conspiracy to burgle in connection with a spate of burglaries across the district between November 1, 2017 and January 20 this year.

He was arrested on Wednesday, February 28 at his home address and was remanded in custody by Hatfield Remand Court on Thursday, March 1.

Palache will appear at St Albans Crown Court on Wednesday, March 28.

Det Insp Alex Warwick said: “Thank you to the public for reporting suspicious incidents and sending us your CCTV images, which has assisted us greatly in tackling burglaries across the district.

“Please continue to call us on 101 – or 999 if you suspect a crime is in progress or you suspect someone’s life is in danger.”

The arrest was part of Herts Police’s month of action to track down wanted suspects

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden.
