Police are appealing for witnesses after a car was stolen in St Albans last week in the early hours of morning.

Thieves broke into a pearlescent black BMW 5 Series that was parked in Belmont Hill on Friday, October 18, between 5.50am and 6.20am.

The vehicle contained a number of children’s items including a car seat, a McLaren pushchair, new clothing from Next, some shoes and a toy cash till.

A portable DVD player, new women’s clothing and a purse with cash and cards were also in the seized car.

PC Ben Kirby, from the St Albans Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I would appeal to anyone who believes they may have seen any unusual activity in Belmont Hill around the time of the incident to get in touch with me as soon as possible, or anyone who has seen any of these items in suspicious circumstances since that time.”

Anyone with information should contact police on the non-emergency number 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
