Three teenagers have been arrested after cash and tills were stolen from three Wheathampstead businesses.

The males from Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to burgle.

On Thursday, November 9, Impressions, Wheathampstead post office, and La Beautique on Station Road were burgled.

Two of the males have been bailed until next month, and the other has been release under investigation.

They were arrested after a member of the public spotted a car behaving suspiciously and took a partial note of its licence plate.

Det Sgt Katy Jackson said: “The important information from the member of the public helped us identify the three suspects. Please always call us if you see people or vehicles acting suspiciously.

“Businesses owners, please make sure no cash is stored overnight in your premises, and invest in good quality locks.”

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. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
