A man arrested after First and Second World War artefacts and munitions were seized from a St Albans address during a raid has been bailed by the police for the third time.

Bomb squad experts carried out controlled detonations of seized items after the execution of a search warrant on a Windmill Avenue home in September last year.

A spokeswoman for the Herts Police said a 48-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of alleged theft from heritage and protected sites was bailed last Wednesday, January 7, to attend the police station on March 3.

He had first been bailed at the time of his arrest in September and again on November 14.

However no charges have yet been laid.
