It was a close call last week for one man who managed to scare off a burglar before they had the chance to steal anything.
At about 4.30 on Tuesday (12) morning the man, who has not been named, heard someone trying to open the back door of his home on Marshall Avenue, St Albans.
He went downstairs to have a look and saw the outline of a man through the glass and shouted.
The alleged burglar then ran off along with a second man.
The police searched the area with assistance from the dog unit but could not find the culprits.
