A man who police wanted to speak to in connection with a number of incidents in St Albans, Potters Bar and Hitchin has been jailed.

A thief who was wanted by police has been jailed today – less than a week after the Herts Advertiser published an appeal to find him.

Daniel Taylor was sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of theft at Hatfield Remand Court, with 14 other crimes taken into consideration.

He was also prosecuted for failing to appear at Hertford Magistrates’ Court in August after being charged with theft.

An appeal from Herts police to track down the 35-year-old was released on November 13 after a spate of thefts across the county – including two incidents at the BP garage’s M&S store in Stevenage Road, Hitchin, on November 6 and 11.

Taylor, of no fixed address, was subsequently arrested after being spotted by a member of the public in St Albans.

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.
