Police appeal following Harpenden burglary

TWO men have been arrested following a burglary in Harpenden yesterday (May 28).

The incident happened shortly after 12.30pm, at a property in Breadcroft Lane, off Cornwall Road.

Two young men were seen to run from a driveway and get into a blue Vauxhall Omega before driving off.

Soon after, marked police cars attempted to stop the car, which drove off and was involved in a collision in Ladies Grove, off Batchwood Drive, St Albans. Three men were seen to leave the car and a short time later, two men were arrested.

Det Sgt Dan Stoddart from the St Albans Local Crime Unit said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Cornwall Road, Harpenden at around 12.30pm to contact me if they have any information which would assist my investigation.
